Game Of Thrones Scripts Leaked After Major HBO Hack

Saturday, 05 Aug, 2017

The episode, called "The Spoils of War", will air this Sunday, but was released online Friday morning on a Reddit discussion board.

Instead, this episode leak stems from a security breach at HBO distribution partner Star India. "This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action", a Star India spokesperson said.

Other than the HBO TV show episodes, the hackers have also managed to access "thousands" of internal company documents including personally identifiable data and passwords of HBO Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications Jeff Cusson's office.

The HBO hack unfurled at the start of this week, allegedly leaking unaired episodes of HBO series Insecure and Ballers, apart from GoT script treatments with the promise of more.

We knew Game of Thrones was a popular show and that the season seven premiere was going to be big. HBO, of course, is the channel behind global smash hit Game of Thrones. The hope for many, of course, is that they contain further Game of Thrones leaks or perhaps some full episodes.

Monday's First Warning Forecast: A cool and sunny start
Low humidity and still air have allowed for temperatures to tumble quite a bit in non-urban, non-coastal areas of the state. A gradual warming trend through the week will bring temperatures back into the middle to upper 80s by Wednesday .

THR cited industry insiders who claimed the hack was about "targeting specific content and data housed in different locations", which would suggest there were "multiple points of entry". Incidentally, the hacker's name is a Game of Thrones reference to a character on the show. However, the Google Drive file has reportedly been viewed too many times to continue to successfully stream. In fact, the email said that the hackers plan to release new information every Sunday for the foreseeable future.

"The HBO attack was relatively a new phenomenon". Sunday's episode, however, sets a record for the shortest episode yet, coming in at only 50 minutes in length.

In a company email obtained by Entertainment Weekly Monday, HBO CEO Richard Plepler assured employees that the initial "cyber incident" was being taken seriously.
