That's why it was downvoted.
Pretty sure Vesh is a guy. Also, he later commented on the same things people are going to criticize, and basically said the same things the non-alarmist people have been saying. Riot's been trying to contain the fire until they could get a good handle of the situation. Haters gonna hate.

I'd contact Player Support. They'll probably be swamped over the next few days, but they should be able to work something out for you.

that's outdated. You need to update YOUR definition of "strong" password.

They mean it's encrypted. Hire a good enough hacker, with a powerful enough machine, and it becomes "readable".

You know, when I claimed to someone that LoL/Riot was indeed hackable they called me a 'c-ck sucking r-tard' and laughed at me.

I felt like that one dude with an 'The End is Nigh' cardbox thing over my chest.


And this happens.

And now I sit here on the throne of my PRIDE, sneering down at you fools.

Whose laughing now biotches?!


WHOSE'S LAUGHING NAO?

I AM.
HAHAHAHA.

In all seriousness, why do people think that because something doesn't seem hackable it automatically isn't? I'll let you in on a little secret, everything computerized that can be systematically modified/'entered' in any way shape or form is 'hackable' - because that's technically what a hack is, a modification or 'entering and extraction' of data. It can be done with just about anything given the right tech. This includes calculators, phones, and yes - Riot's backlogs.

Now excuse me while I sit atop my tower of ultimate self-righteousness.

For the record, "salted password hashes" aren't unreadable. That implies that they can't decrypt them. Which I can assure you they have as my email was accessed as well. I've spent the last 1.5 hours changing passwords, even those that weren't similar. I'm sick of software developers leaving themselves vulnerable. Get it together, hire a better auditor, this is absurd.
