Online Hacker Group Spreads Newest Game of Thrones Episode

The hack has seen data pertaining to the Game of Thrones series being compromised, leading to concerns that scripts of the new season of the show are in danger of being leaked online. When the episodes appeared online, the company merely shrugged. However, a network insider told Entertainment Weekly the leak isn't the result of the previously reported hack, but rather originated with Star India, one of HBO's worldwide partners, which receives episodes in advance.

Days after HBO was hit with a massive hack, Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones has leaked online. The cybercriminals released the script for the August 6 "Game of Thrones" episode, along with episodes of "Ballers", "Insecure", "Room 104" and with two episodes of "Barry", the comedy starring Bill Hader set to debut in 2018 on the network. It does carry a date of July 20 in its opening info card, which suggests that the episode has been ready since the first week of Game of Thrones season 7, typical for productions of such level.

The hackers had leaked unreleased episodes of HBO's shows Ballers and Room 104.
