Which one of you guys managed to get my password? Somehow my password was constantly being reset. I don't have a keylogger (i checked, no foreign processes and a virus scan came up negative), nobody could possibly have intercepted my connection from my router (WPA2 encryption with a 23 figure random password), and it could not have been brute forced (it would take an estimated couple of millenia in order to brute force P13oa$itfhaf&f). So which one of you scoundrels got my password on accident? >:(

Someone else also had that issue...

Have you reset it yourself recently?


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

I didn't reset it myself, and I was getting reset e-mails when i hadn't done them. It's passed, but it was rather annoying. Also, for some reason I'm just curious as to how somebody got my password.

Okay.

So, lets assume that you have a legitimate concern. (And you've been hacked.)

1. Your password is saved in a database, which is MD5 hashed, hid inside a big old server, which is protected with big old firewalls, and has crazy laws protecting it and ****.

2. Evil Hacker d00ds actually aren't that common, and they don't give two ***** about your LoL account.

3. Even if you DID piss off an Evil Hacker d00d, he would need to go through a server, in other words, he would have to break serious laws in order to get your info, he would also then have to reverse an MD5 Hash, something considered impossible as far as i know.

Now, Assuming that you don't have a legitimate concern(i.e. it's a problem with a script), lets look at what course of action should be taken.

1. Contact riot's support team, and make them aware of the issue at hand.

2. Riot will contact you shortly with information about your problem, or questions based on your problem.


Now, if you actually gave your password to someone that you can't beat up in real life, you're just dumb.
Tri lane for life.
