League of Legends Account Info Compromised

Yesterday Riot Games announced that some basic account information including “usernames, email addresses, salted password hashes and first and last names” were compromised, as well as payment information for some transactions from 2011.

Perhaps more importantly, however, Riot announced the addition of two new security features that are currently under development: email verification and two-factor authentication via SMS or email.  The moral of the story here for the time being, of course, is to change your login details.
