Nothing like a security breach to get players seeing red.

According to the developer, the attackers took names, e-mail addresses, and dates of birth, as well as encrypted versions of passwords, security questions, and users' answers. Riot stressed that no credit card or payment information was obtained in the attack, and specified that user's names and security Q&A information was obtained only for "a small number of players." Additionally, the company no longer uses security questions in the account recovery process.

In addition to apologizing for the breach, Riot Games said it has fixed the security hole that was exploited in this case. It has also e-mailed those players affected, and is recommending all players change their account passwords.
