Attention! ‘Game of Thrones’ & 1.5TB HBO data hacked


London, Aug 1: Viewers were eagerly waiting for the latest episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ (GoT) next week but a group of hackers has leaked its script and 1.5TB of HBO data of popular TV shows.

According to report, hackers claimed to steal 1.5TB of data, including the script for episode 4 of the latest ‘GoT’ season as well as unreleased episodes of ‘Ballers’ and ‘Room 104’.

HBO also confirmed the same “cyber incident.”

The hackers threatened to leak out more in near future.

“After Sony’s hack in 2014, the HBO hack is a reminder of the new world that we live in. 1.5 Terabytes is a lot of data to lose”,” said Ankush Johar, Director, BugsBounty.com.

“The question is not IF you will be hacked, it’s WHEN you will be hacked. And when you do, have you put the right alarm bells in place to mitigate your risk and minimise the damage?” Johar said in a statement.
