Hackers leak more Game of Thrones spoilers

Share

The Verge said it was able to verify the authenticity of the leaked Game of Thrones episode; Variety has not independently confirmed that. With the threat of more data leaks to come, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has got involved to try to track down the culprits.

A recent episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones" was leaked online but the network said it's not the result of a recent hack.

"HBO spends 12 million for Market Research and 5 million for [Game of Thrones season seven] advertisements. So consider us another budget for your advertisements!" the note read.

The email continued, "Some of HBO's top competitors are negotiating with us for buying the dump".

The confidential folder offers a screen shot of files that largely pertain to Game of Thrones and include castings, script summaries and marketing materials, including a detailed summary of the episode that is set to air August 13.

The Reporter wrote the documents included a video letter addressed to HBO CEO Richard Plepler, who was not the executive whose emails were leaked. The hackers also warned that if the money is not given, they will continue with their leaks. The video also constitutes of stills from the show explaining the plot summary.

To show they mean business, the television network have called in the FBI to investigate the data breach in which hackers claim to have lifted 1.5 terabytes of data after breaking into HBO's computer network. The latest release amounted to about a half gigabyte of files, Wired reported, and the hackers claimed to have a whopping 1.5 terabytes in all. "As we said, the forensic review is ongoing", an HBO spokesperson said in a statement to THR. The trade publication did not share the link - which so far we've been unable to find ourselves - nor did it divulge much from its contents, other than to say it was from a New York-based programming VP.

It isn't unknown of HBO being victimized with a hack.
