Riot Games's development environment was exposed to a hacker attack last week. The developers have now discovered that attackers gained access to League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and outdated anti-cheat software.
Riot Games claims to have received a ransom request. The developers refuse to pay, but the company has alerted law enforcement and hired external experts to review systems and enhance security.
Riot claims that players' data and personal information was not affected. However, access to the source code increases the likelihood of new cheats, so the developers are taking further steps. To do this, access to the Riot Games launcher is temporarily disabled.
The company promises to publish a complete report on the incident, including how the attackers gained access, how the security measures worked, and what actions are being taken to prevent similar incidents in the future.
