Hacked HBO episodes and 'Game Of Thrones' script leak online

Postado Agosto 04, 2017

The Company does not appear to quite what the damage is now. Wouldn't you love to see that first email that HBO sent them?

She made the confession in a chat with Time Out magazine, revealing the storyline will "crash down" as Game of Thrones moves towards its conclusion.

HBO should be shaking in their boots right now considering that they've been hacked before.

In a statement, HBO acknowledged it suffered a data breach, though it did not specify exactly what information was compromised. Review DVDs sent to the press and industry insiders reportedly led to the leak, resulting in HBO's decision to stop sending screeners to critics.

In a staff email, HBO chairman Richard Plepler assured employees that the email system had not been hacked.

"Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us", he wrote. "I can assure that senior leadership and their excellent technology team along with outside professionals; all are working the clock to protect their collective interests".

HBO is the latest entertainment firm to be hit by a cyber breach. The series that have leaked comprise of "Ballers" and "Room 104". Until now the biggest victim to the hackers has been Sony in 2014 with around 100 terabytes of data getting uploaded online. Hackers have also promised to leak from information. Further, Entertainment Weekly reported that the hackers may have probably taken a script or story treatment for the next week's episode of the show.

The leakers have said that more releases will be coming later on.

Game of Thrones is without a doubt one of the most successful television series at the moment.

These claims have as-of-yet been unconfirmed, and hackers generally overstate their loot. HBO is working with law enforcement, but it's unclear if they'll catch the crooks before they spill the network's goods all over the web.

Till then, it's perhaps better to stay guarded against Game of Thrones spoilers online especially as the "Winter is here".
