HBO says a hacker has released what might be a script from the next episode of Game of Thrones and more leaks are expected.
The unknown hacker put upcoming episodes of Ballers and Room 104 and a script that is apparently the next episode of Game of Thrones online.
The person behind the cyber attack promised more is “coming soon,” and an anonymous email was reportedly sent to various journalists celebrating the leak.
The chairman and CEO of HBO, Richard Plepler, emailed employees about the data breach, calling it “disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing.”
HBO said: “We 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 cyber security firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”
It’s unclear exactly what Game of Thrones details was released in the hack, or if the script was even legitimate in the first place.
