Boycott Riot Games


Boycott Date and Time

5-5-2013, Sunday

11am-2pm Pacific Time
12pm-3pm Mountain Time
1pm--4pm Central Time
2pm--5pm Eastern Time


This will be in protest to the fact that Riot is compromising your
computers security.


A week ago I posted that the download path for the game can be changed.

If that were changed by a virus your computer could then open up a web address and download anything.

Thus potentially giving someone complete control of your computer.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Below are the locations of the configuration file that define where the updates for the game are downloaded form.


Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\system

system.cfg

Inside the file

DownloadURL=l3cdn.riotgames.com
DownloadPath=/releases/live
Region=NA



Go look at the file and try to change the download path.

Say----DownloadURL =A_Virus_Is_Downloading_Onto_Your_Computer.com


Why hasn't Riot Made it so no one can change this file?

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


Someone could change the text in the file and have your system download a virus or let someone steal everything from your computer.



This was put on the Forums 1 week ago and Riot hasn't set it Right.

Multiple people by now may already have made virus' that are going around the web.

If you get one, that someone could be able to steal everything on your computer.



We have to tell Riot we are not going to allow them to leave a hole in are computers that someone can exploit, if we want to play Riots game.

I'm calling for a boycott of Riot from 11am Pacific Time until 2pm Pacific Time
Sunday, 5-5-2013



Don't Play Sunday, 5-5-2013.. Between 11am-2pm Pacific Time




As for anyone else that wants to join in on the Boycott of Riot, but for another reason, now is your time.

For whatever reason if Riot has wronged you, or you feel like Riot has rubbed you the wrong way.
And you want to show them what you think about it.

And you want your voice to be heard.



Don't Play Sunday, 5-5-2013.. Between 11am-2pm Pacific Time




For anyone that doesn't realize it.

You own Riot.

You control Riot!

If you and all your friends and everyone else decided you were not
going to pay 6300ip for the champions, and said "if Riot didn't lower the amount you will go play another game."

Riot will Lower the amount!!!


It is the same for runes, skins, and boosts.

You. And I do mean "You". Have the power to control Riot.



Don't Play Sunday, 5-5-2013.. Between 11am-2pm Pacific Time




Tell everyone you play with not to play between 11am and 2pm, Sunday 5-5-2013 .

Post about it in the forums.



This Will Be A Way For Everyone To See How much Power "You" Have.




This will be the first boycott of Riot.

Future ones will be scheduled and the duration decided on if there is anything that affects
everyone. That Riot will not set Right.



Everyone take part in this, and let your voice be heard.

How about you just tell them something like this can happen, I'm under the assumption everything you said is correct, and have them deal with it? Much better than attacking them don't you think? Better question, do you think?

He shouldn't be reavealing ways to compromise League of Legends users by some "software flaw".
Infact it's ilegal.
The rational way is simply telling riot via private email.
