Upcoming Episodes Of the Games Of Thrones Leaked

HBO Hacked: Games Of Thrones Content Released Online

The Seven Kingdoms of the Game of Thrones are again under the attack, but not by the Winter walkers this time. The HBO got attacked by the hackers and they stole the data of the media channel and it doesn't seem quite clear how much damage they have done.

A secret group of hackers breached into the HBO, data storage unit and stole the information related to the popular series on the channel. The hackers already streamed the new unaired episodes of the famous series Ballers and Room 104 over the Internet. They didn't stop here, the script of the upcoming episodes of the masterpiece of the HBO, The Game of thrones is also emanated by the hackers online. The hackers claimed that they have stolen about 1.5 terabytes of the HBO data and threaten the channel by saying other leaks are on its way.

The HBO made the news official after publishing its statement in the Entertainment WeeklyAs 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” said by HBO CEO, Richard Plepler. Afterward, Richard ensures the viewers by saying that the company's high authority and extraordinary technology team are working around the clock to make sure everything stays safe.

After streaming the episodes of Ballers and Room 104 episodes the hackers send the script of the upcoming episodes of the Game of Thrones seventh seasons via email to some of the reporters by saying -

Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What’s its name? Oh, I forget to tell. It's 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. (AS per EW)

This is not the first time a channel got hacked, back in 2014 SONY got attacked and hackers released some it's episodes prior to the date. Same happened with the Netflix in April and the attackers streamed the fifth episode of Orange is the New Blue prior to its debut date. The attacker's group named The Dark Overload took the responsibility of the attack and also claimed that they have also hacked into FOX and ABC database.

The email sent to the reporters containing The Games of Thrones upcoming episode content also said that more content on the way. Are they talking about the remaining episodes of the most popular series of the HBO? Will the secrecy of the script of the Games of Thrones remain or it will end up with spoilers? Is the biggest question.
