The ongoing saga continues over at HBO as hackers have reportedly threatened to release the Game Of Thrones season seven finale.
HBO was hacked by the so-called ‘Mr Smith Group’ who alredy stole 1.5 terabytes of data, including scripts from Game Of Thrones as well as personal employee data, social media passwords and in fresh reports, they’ve released even more information.
According to Mashable, the hackers claim to ‘have access to many HBO Platforms already’, and have threatened to release the season seven finale ahead of its air date.
Last week, HBO Spain accidentally broadcast episode 6 four days early.
The episode was online for one hour before it was pulled down, but by then it was obviously too late and the unfortunate leak had spread like Wildfire.
HBO released an earlier statement:
We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released.
It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in.
So, it continues.
