Washington, Aug 26: HBO hackers leaked the climax of last episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 7 and called themselves “Mr Smith”.
According to Mashable, the hacking group stole approximately 1.5 terabytes of data and said:” sixth wave of leaks that contain confidential plot summaries and details of how the season will end.”
“Mashable has read the confidential summary but has chosen not to publish the explicit details,” the report said.
HBO has said the hackers may continue to telecast the stolen information time to time to grab the attention.
“That’s a game we’re not going to participate in,” HBO said.
The hacking group demanded approximately $6.5 million worth of Bitcoin from HBO.
However, they claimed to sold the data to three customers in return of half the amount they had requested from HBO.
“By the way, we officially inform you and other hundreds of reporters whom we are emailing that we sold ‘HBO IS FALLING’ entire collection (5 TB) to three customers in deep web and we earned half of the requested ransom,” the hackers said.
“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.”
