RIOT are sorting dodgy store access after exploit was discovered by the community.
Spotted by reddit users, it was discovered that that the League of Legends store could be accessed via web browser which opened up an exploit allowing access to a user’s Summoner ID and ultimately unauthorised transactions could be made on a users account.
RIOT were quick to respond and issued the following reassurance to players concerned or affected by the problem.
“We’re getting this fixed right now, though we can’t speak to the specifics of the exploit or the explanations fellow Redditors have been offering. What we can say is that we can see everyone who was hit by an attack, and we’ll be returning all RP/IP that was lost.
Since the store was involved, we also want to reassure you that this didn’t expose any personal information like credit card numbers. Your data is safe.”
The image below shows the offending code that was being passed back to browsers and it’s good to see this is being dealt with and any League of Legends RP/IP is being reinstated.
