Riot Games has been hacked: League of Legends and other game source codes stolen
The leak of these source codes often means that cheats will be easier to make because cheat developers can directly observe the operating principle of the game without reverse engineering. However, Riot Games stated that they are already working hard to reduce the impact of this incident and can fix the loopholes in the anti-cheat system in due course. In addition, they also stated that the leaked source code contains a large number of experimental features that may not necessarily appear in the official game.
Riot Games is currently assessing the impact of this attack and is working to improve the security of the entire system to prevent similar incidents from happening again. They will release a detailed report on the incident in the future. In general, to prevent social engineering attacks, the security awareness of company employees and game developers is more important than computer software and hardware.
