Well considering there also seem to be several other sorts of programs that give people an advantage, what does Riot intend to about these and those that may be developed in the future? Cheaters are everywhere, and even though you've dealt with some recently, what will all of you be doing to make it more difficult for the evildoers to play unfairly? Or rather, what do you think you can do?

I've played a ranked game where it DCed everyone and vanished, it sucked. I'm glad something is being done in an attempt to prevent it now. You said you've identified a lot of the people causing this disruption and earlier mentioned looking into legal avenues. I would just like to say I would hope you pursue those as it's the only real way to discourage people from doing this. Solely fixing the problem will just push these people and others like them to just search for a new vulnerable area as they will feel there is no real consequence.

Thanks for your efforts (:

In short, yes.

What will happen to those who were effected while in a ranked game per say? I mean the players Who were effected gaining a small amount of elo. Where as the DDoS'ers are being dealt with accordingly. I ask because before the noted hot fix, I had experienced this DDoS attack in a ranked game a few times and lost out on elo gains due to these attacks. To clarify I'm not thinking about myself only here. I do mean this for others who were in a ranked game as well.

Our players are very industrious, and will come up with ways to cheat. The competitive nature of Lol makes this even more desirable for some. Personally, I feel we are very good at detecting and dealing with these things at a very good rate. But I'm just a network guy...so take that opinion with a bag of salt
