Hackers claimed to have parts of a future ‘Game of Thrones’ script


Hackers are claiming data they have put online is written material from the next new episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Entertainment Weekly reported Monday that the alleged details from the show’s script or written treatment is part of 1.5 terabytes of data hackers say they got from HBO.

Hackers reportedly claim the breach contains one upcoming episode from two of HBO’s other television series, Ballers and Room 104.

The hacked episodes from both shows are now apparently online, according to Entertainment Weekly, and hackers are promising more leaks are “coming soon.”

Some Twitter users on Monday voiced outrage that hackers would target Game of Thrones, which will next air the fourth episode of its seventh season.

Other people on the social media platform poked fun at the hack, which struck one of HBO’s most popular shows.

HBO is reportedly not commenting on which of its content was stolen, including confirming specific titles targeted or the amounts of data breached.

The network confirmed in a Monday statement, however, that some of its information was hacked.

“HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” it said in a statement.

“We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms,” HBO added.

“Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”

Game of Thrones premiered its first episode 2011 and the fantasy series has since become a global phenomenon.

The show is an adaption of author George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, which recounts a war over the Seven Kingdoms of the continent of Westeros.
