Hello Summoner,

In order to maintain account security while we investigate unauthorized activity on our NA server, we recently required all players on the NA, EUW, and EUNE server to reset their passwords.

We know that usernames, e-mail addresses, and some first and last names were compromised. We are also investigating a number of transactions from 2011 that have been accessed. We will e-mail players whose transactions have been compromised, so if your e-mail address was accurate when you made the transaction and you don’t receive an e-mail, your data is likely safe.

I’m really sorry, but please know that we are working to bring this to a satisfactory resolution and make account security stronger than ever.

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.


Lol.

its funny you cant use any smart passwords you would remember, but you can use your name and birth year and its ok lol even says strong lol. if any thing they should not allow that lol. i figured if you dont hit 15 characters the password is okay if your lucky to get alot of numbers in there.
i guess i should learn to play a different game now.


Uhm... The password strength meter isn't going to be able to tell you what your name was or when you were born.
It's up to you to know that's a stupid password to use.
And of course it's going to let you use it. You're using a capital letter and 2-4 numbers.

I also asked for it to be escalated to a supervisor/manager. I was pissed. This is Riot, not iRO, I'm not putting up with these iRO-like canned responses.

It is so frustrating having to update passwords under the guise of security when the system is obviously programmed by someone who does not understand security or even the simple concept of entropy.

Hi, you seem to have posted an outdated webcomic. Please update your knowledge of password security: http://arstechnica.com/security/2012/08/passwords-under-assault/
