Heroes of Newerth accounts hacked, passwords breached; “I guess I’ll do LoL next”, boasts hacker

Comment
Heroes of Newerth accounts hacked, passwords breached; “I guess I’ll do LoL next”, boasts hackerS2 Games revealed that runner-up MOBA Heroes of Newerth was hacked early yesterday morning. The developers have reset all passwords, and strongly recommend players do the same for any and all accounts that might share details with HoN. What's more, if you changed your password on Monday before 3pm EST / 8pm GMT, you’ll need to change it again as a precaution.

“Disregard any out-of-game sources of information at this time," said S2 when the news broke. There’s one source we’re going to make an exception for, though. The hacker has conducted a Reddit AMA, and plans to hack HoN’s servers again on Christmas Day.
