HBO have landed in the hands of cyber attackers. The Hackers claim to have obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from the company and have leaked an alleged script for an upcoming episode of “Game of Thrones”. New episodes of several shows like “Ballers”, “Insecure” and “Room 104” have also been put online and the hackers have threatened to release more.
The premium cable channel has confirmed the breach.
“HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” the network says in a statement. “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.”
