Hackers put League of Legends source code up for auction
As reported by TechRadar, during a recent security breach at Riot Games, the League of Legends source code was stolen by hackers, and is now being auctioned off to the highest bidder.
After Riot refused to pay the more than 10 million dollars that the pirates demanded to recover the code, the crooks have turned to a popular forum to auction off the data. The starting price for the League of Legends code is one million dollars.
It is believed that the data could be used for cheating in the popular MOBA, as Riot has explained. The source code for Teamfight Tactics and Packman, a legacy anti-cheat solution, are also up for auction.
Riot has postponed some of the upcoming patches planned for League of Legends due to this fact, but luckily the user information has not been compromisedand nothing was stolen during the hack.
