    GoT Season 7 - Episode 5 LEAK - HBO hackers publish details on future episodes

    CYBERCRIMINALS have shared a slew of scripts for unaired episodes of Game Of Thrones season 7 online, believed to have been obtained during the HBO hack earlier this month.

    Hackers have purportedly published more data from the HBO hack earlier this month, including scripts of unaired episodes of Game Of Thrones.

    Scripts and other material for future season 7 episodes, including episode 5 Eastwatch, which is set to air on Sunday August 13th.

    The latest leak arrives one week after HBO – the US television network behind the likes of Game Of Thrones, Westworld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Ballers, and more – confirmed it had been hacked.

    Hackers are believed to have published emails an executive at the premium cable company (this is disputed by HBO), as well as documents linked to the latest season of Game of Thrones.

    According to Associated Press, the latest “dump includes scripts from five Game of Thrones episodes, including one upcoming episode, and a month’s worth of email from the account of an HBO programming executive.”

    Cybercriminals behind the attack had threatened to leak more data ahead of the latest episode, The Spoils Of War, on Sunday night.

    Variety was emailed the threat from the group, which claimed the hackers have plans to “release the leak gradually every week”.

    n the automated email, the hackers reiterated their previous claim of having stolen of 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO’s computer network.

    HBO has acknowledged the hack, but it has not confirmed or commented on the types of files – or the quantity – that was stolen.

    “HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” the television network confirmed in a written 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.”

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, it has received a video letter from the hacker.

    In the video message, the hackers purportedly demand money from HBO, and claim the premium television network is their 17th hacking target.

    It took six months to gain access to HBO’s internal database, the hackers allege.

    HBO is co-operating with cybersecurity firms and law enforcement to resolve the incident.

    “While it has been reported that a number of emails have been made public, the review to date has not given us a reason to believe that our email system as a whole has been compromised,” a representative from HBO told Variety.

    The news comes as the fourth episode of the seventh season – entitled “The Spoils Of War” – was leaked online ahead of its air date, and subsequently shared via a Google Drive link.

    The feverishly-anticipated new episode of the hit fantasy series includes a For Internal Viewing Only watermark, as well as the logo of HBO distribution partner, Star India.

    According to The Verge, the Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 4 leak was not the result of the HBO hack earlier this month.

    The leaked episode – which is fairly low quality – was obtained from Star India’s website.

    Star India has been handling distribution of HBO content in India since 2015.

    A spokesperson for the company told The Verge: “This confirms the compromise of episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 7, earlier this afternoon.

    “We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner’s end to swiftly determine the cause.

    “This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action.”
