Game of Thrones

Hackers threatened to leak full episodes of HBO upcoming shows along with written material from next week's episode of "Game of Thrones". The shocking news of leak comes just days after hackers breached into HBO episodes, "Game of Thrones" information online. Instead, the Verge reports that the new episode found its way to the internet via HBO distribution partner Star India. In a statement, the company said it is taking the leak "very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations". They also said they made off with 1.5 terabytes of content in all from the premium cable network, also promised that more leaks are "coming soon". In previous years, screeners sent to the press were the method by which episode were leaked online, but HBO chose to do away with screeners for the seventh season.

"The Spoils of War" - which is the shortest ever Game of Thrones episode (50 minutes), airs Sunday, August 6th.

Hackers were said to have breached the company's confidential computer systems and left the message that read, "Hi to all mankind".

However, users have reported that links to the leaked Game Of Thrones episode are being quickly taken down. "Shortly after we started examining the incident and are working with the police force and worldwide cybersecurity organizations". Since this season only consists of seven episodes as opposed to the normal ten, HBO has compensated by giving allowing for longer run times.

Some outlets have confirmed the episode is genuine, with some reporting the footage contains a "for internal viewing only" watermark. HBO has yet to issue an official response to this leak.

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.
