Apparently news has been spread that a rather popular hacker group has hacked League of Legends. Questions to the devs would obviously be: Has Riot been affected by this? Is it true? Is this a result of the past fews days of the server going wonky? And lastly, has League of Legend players have had their information taken by Lulzsec?

LulzSec didnt hack Riot.
They DDoS'ed the server. (Denial of service, aka knocking them offline or giving them severe server strain)
There is no personal information on League of Legends players unless you are referencing credit card information when buying Riot points which isnt stored with your account but on a seperate server monitored by a seperate company with different protections implemented.
The fact is as you could have easily read if you just googled, LulzSec doesnt hack to take anything but to raise awareness. Raise your awareness by doing the research about the group. They hacked and took private data from Senate.gov, an actual government website. They got into the company that does the FBI's cyber security and single handedly shamed the owner with chat logs and voice messages of him not living up to his publicized white hat nature.
Who cares about a little childs game? The idea was to get a laugh out of it and enrage a few people. LulzSec isnt going to get any real attention from something as small as this especially when in the past they have already done Sony, Nintendo, Senate.gov, ABC and other major cyber security companies.

tl;dr
Please do your research.

I disagree that Lulzec simply hacks to raise awareness, that would be far too simple an explanation. The use of a ddos attack isn't a technique used for awareness of security holes, it's a method of aggravation. Since they attacked companies for no reason other then (minecraft, LoL, EVE) at the behest of random callers I wouldn't say that it's just a funny joke.

To say that they do it for awareness is far too watered down. They do it because they can, and they make sure everyone knows it. If you've read their twitter, you can read it for yourself. If they did it to raise awareness then that was what they felt like saying to justify their actions to the netizens.

If you wish to research, do it thoroughly

Eh what that group hacked isn't impressive. I'll give them props if they manage to hack into F.B.I. or C.I.A. secured servers. You'd be surprised about what sort of data those servers hold . They're gold mines of dirty secrets.

Are you ******ed? You don't DDos to "raise awareness".
Though it's a nice excuse except when you post "FTLULZ" after everything.
Try actually reading what they come out with.
