A hacking group called "Mr. Smith" struck again on Friday and leaked documents that allegedly contain the end of "Game of Thrones" Season 7.
The hacking group told Mashable in an email that they are going to continue to leak HBO documents.
"By the way, we officially inform you and other hundred of reporters whom emailing us that we sold 'HBO IS FALLING's entire collection (5 TB!!!) to 3 customer in deep web and we earned half of requested ransom," the hackers wrote. "We put a condition for our respected customers and they approved. We will leak many many waves of HBO's internal stuff to punish them for playing us and set an example of greedy corporation."
HBO issued a statement in response to the leaks.
"The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention," HBO wrote. "That’s a game we’re not going to participate in."
Earlier this summer, Mr. Smith stole 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO that contained scripts for programs like "Game Of Thrones," "Ballers," and "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver." The hacking group demanded approximately $6.5 million worth of Bitcoin from HBO in exchange to stop leaking the documents.
Many have been waiting for these leaks.
