If you live in North America and play "League of Legends" -- and, given its rapidly increasing popularity, you probably do -- you'll need to log-in and change your password as soon as possible. According to an e-mail sent to players by Riot Games, North American player information has been compromised.
User names, e-mail addresses, salted password hashes, first and last names, and over 120,000 transaction records dating from 2011 have all been compromised. According to the e-mail, those account passwords are unreadable, but players with easily guessed passwords are vulnerable to account theft.
More troubling are the transaction records, which also contained salted and hashed credit card numbers. Riot are in the process of e-mailing affected players, so check your spam folders and contact your bank or credit card company if you've ever bought a "League of Legends" champion or skin.
