As per the sources, the most popular channel HBO hacked for some time and the hackers claim that they have stolen some episodes of Game of Thrones.
The news of HBO hacked by the most disruptive tech minds is a head turner indeed. HBO has confirmed that the hackers have stolen some crucial programming during the hack. Though the channel has not told specifically about the content that has been hacked, the hackers say that they possess fascinating content related to famous Game of Thrones.
Entertainment Weekly has mentioned that hackers claim to acquire the company’s 1.5TB data. For now, they have allegedly leaked the upcoming episode of Ballers and Room 104 on the internet. Also, they say that they will soon release the fourth episode of Game of Thrones. However, it’s not clear if they really have some content related to it.
Eric Deggans from NPR told that HBO was so cautious about its Game of Thrones’ new season that it didn’t even hand over the premium copies of the fresh episodes to the journalists. Talking about the hack, the channel would involve cyber security companies to probe this violation.
Before HBO, Sony fell prey to its hackers in 2014 when the personal information of employees as well as the important films were leaked. ‘HBO Hacked’ is today’s headline and such hacks can have a serious consequence on the entire Hollywood industry.
