Riot hit by ‘social engineering attack’ that will affect patch cadence for multiple titles

Right before the start of various leagues in the League of Legends esports circuit, Riot Games has declared today that systems in the company’s development environment “were compromised via a social engineering attack.”

Not many details have been shared by the developers just yet, but the team does not see any indication that player data, passwords, user names, or personal information were taken. In the coming weeks, Riot will be investigating the issues thoroughly and return with its findings to the public in due time.
