Next Episode of 'Game of Thrones' Leaks Following HBO Hack

Next Episode of 'Game of Thrones' Leaks Following HBO Hack

Earlier this week HBO experienced a security breach which has now led to the 4th episode of it's most raved about program, Game Of Thrones, being leaked online in a low-quality format. 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 network confirmed Monday that "proprietary information" was stolen, although officials did not specify what had been taken.

The leaked episode, "The Spoils of War", made the rounds on the spoiler-embracing Reddit community r/freefolk on Friday morning. Now the network is working along with law enforcement and independent cyber security experts to investigate the attack.

"Information security is a prime concern at HBO, and we assume our role and responsibility seriously to save guide information that is assigned to us". At this moment, it is unclear if this version of the leaked episode can be traced back to the HBO hack.

Game of Thrones' seventh season recently got underway, with the third episode airing last Sunday in the United States, and Monday in the UK.

No connection between this leak and this week's HBO breach has been stated outright, but it's not hard to imagine they're related.

Games Of Thrones leaks are nothing new. The first four episodes of Season 5 were leaked in 2015, after HBO sent preview copies to the press.

In a memo to staffers Wednesday, HBO chief Richard Plepler said the hackers did not compromise the programmer's e-mail system "as a whole" but added that "the forensic review is ongoing".

Among some of the alleged 1.5 terabytes stolen are episodes and scripts for episodes that have yet to be broadcast of Game of Thrones.

HBO's network suffered a disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing cyber attack earlier this week.

"The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean". "The problem before us is unfortunately all to familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of", Pleper said.
