The script for an unaired Game of Thrones episode has reportedly been leaked online after a hack at HBO. The hack has also resulted in two unaired episodes of Ballers and Room 104 being leaked online as well. The Game of Thrones script that has been leaked is said to be for the episode that’s due to air next week.
The hackers that did this claim to have over 1.5TB of data in their possession that was taken from HBO. According to Entertainment Weekly, the hackers emailed several reporters last night with information about the leak. They also promised that more content will be leaked soon.
This isn’t the first time that HBO is having to deal with a leak concerning its most popular show. The first four episodes of last year’s Game of Thrones season were leaked online. HBO was later able to confirm that the leaks came from advance screeners that are normally sent out to an approved group of reviews and critics.
HBO decided to stop sending advance screeners for the current season in order to prevent something like that from happening again. It even cautioned the show’s cast members to take extra security measures, like using two-factor authentication on their email accounts, to prevent any mishap.
“HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” the cable giant has confirmed in a statement, adding that it’s investigating the incident and working with law enforcement as well as outside cybersecurity firms.
