The worst has happened!
HBO’s upcoming episodes of a couple of series, including the highly popular fantasy drama Game Of Thrones, have been hacked
The hacker claims to have obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from the premium cabler, including a script for an upcoming episode of Game of Thrones.
HBO provided the following statement: “HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information. We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”
So far, a written material which is believed to have been from Game of Thrones season seven’s fourth episode and an upcoming episode of Ballers and Room 104 have apparently been put online.
According to EW, upcoming episodes from multiple series—including Ballers and Room 104—as well as “at least one alleged script or treatment,” have been put online already, with more supposedly still to come.
the leaks aren't in the form of downloadable episodes, but script summaries from an alleged insider with links to the show.
