When re-checking several websites and Facebook pages, I came across an interesting file that will supposedly generate Riot Codes for you:
League of Legends RP hack 2012. Looks legit.
You need to insert your username, password and the RP value. Looks legit. No wait, it doesn't generate anything, it will just send your credentials to the scriptkiddie. The file is obviously written (read: copy/paste) in Visual Basic and uses the SmtpClient class to send your credentials to a certain mail address:
Voila, here's the email being used
Thanks to the mail address provided, I was able to pull more information by performing a simple Google search; for example real mail address, Facebook, age, location ... I will however not publish any details.

In case you're wondering, the file on itself is not malicious. It will only do harm if you filled in your username and password and actually clicked the "Press here for RP" button. In that case, change your password immediately.
There are similar programs out there, a few examples:
Conclusion is pretty straightforward: besides the normal scams I see "programs" like this rise more and more, not only on Facebook, but also on forums and mainly on YouTube as well.
Don't be fooled by a nice interface or promising words, it's all fake. Remember:
if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
Also as stated before, the programs I encountered above are not malicious on itself. However, it is possible some of these are in fact malicious and may contain a keylogger or viruses. Always be wary when downloading something you don't really know. Use a service like VirusTotal to check for any malicious activity, or run the program in a Sandbox.
