Newsbrief: Riot Games' League of Legends is the latest hacking victim, with the company confirming that personal player information in Europe has been accessed by an unknown assailant.

Hackers gained access to email addresses, encrypted passwords, and some names and security question answers. The company was keen to stress that no payment or billing information was accessed at all.

Riot Games says that it has hired independent security experts to boost its preventative measures and make sure a breach doesn't happen again. In the meantime, it is asking players to change their passwords on their League of Legends accounts.
