HBO Is The Latest Major Hacking Victim

 

It seems hacking into Hollywood is becoming a favorite past-time of cyber bad guys. HBO is the latest victim and the breach could compromise its biggest show. So, you might not have to wait until Sunday to find out what happens on the next episode of "Game of Thrones."

According to Entertainment Weekly, an upcoming episode of "Ballers" and "Room 104" have been put online, along with the script from next week’s fourth episode of "Game of Thrones." What's more, the hackers promise they've got more "coming soon." With a reported 1.5 terabytes of data swiped, there could be a lot more released.

HBO isn't commenting on what exactly has been stolen or leaked, but the network does call the hack "disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing." "I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests," CEO Richard Plepler said in an email to staff. "The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of."
