HBO Hacked – 1.5 TB Data Leaked of Game of Thrones Upcoming Episodes Online
The hackers have stolen 1.5 TB data of ‘Game of Thrones’ episodes and they have uploaded it online. It is going viral at present. The 4th episode (upcoming) of the ‘Game of Thrones’ has leaked on the internet. The HBO CEO Richard Plepler has sent emails to the staff regarding the breach and making them alert with the further data.

Up until now, no GoT scenes have leaked.
“As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming,” he wrote. “Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests. The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of. As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully.”
“Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What’s its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones……!!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling.”
For a considerable length of time, HBO has battled a digital fight to keep Game of Thrones storylines mystery and the show’s content from being illicitly dispersed — especially before scenes air. In season 5, the initial four scenes released online before the show’s season debut after survey DVDs that were sent to the press and industry insiders.
HBO has since stopped the act of sending any scenes ahead of time. That same year, a few clasps leaked early from abroad HBO merchants, and even pictures of Jon Snow’s passing exposed their path online before the finale broadcast. Only two or three weeks back, a Thrones trailer to be screened at Comic-Con leaked onto YouTube ahead of time of its release.
