HBO hacker leaks emails, demands money
The video also outlines the hackers' demands and includes a list of the information the hackers purportedly stole as a result of the attack. Out of respect for HBO, we will not publish any of the information that can be found in those files, but rest assured, this is about as detailed as you can get without the actual episode turning up on line. To stop the leaks, the purported hackers demanded "our 6 month salary in bitcoin", which they implied is at least $6 million.
An anonymous online group recently hacked HBO and has just dropped a document full of vital information from across many of their shows including "Ballers" and "Room 104" and the entire script for the Game of Thrones episode not due to air until August 13th.
The hackers don't specify what further Game of Thrones content they have, but suggest it could spoil the rest of the season for viewers if it is released. This equates to nearly $6m as ransom for the stolen data, or they will continue to leak what they have. While the amount of data is almost seven times that of the 2014 Sony hack, the impact has so far been much less catastrophic.
The demands came in the form of a five-minute video addressed to HBO CEO Richard Plepler from a "Mr. Smith", outlining the group's latest demands. So consider us another budget for your advertisements'. HBO is investigating and working with police and cyber-security experts.
Over 50 internal documents from the info dump on Monday were labeled "confidential", and included a spreadsheet with legal claims against the network and future technology plans. The document included what appeared to be the personal cellphone numbers and email addresses of actors including Emilia Clark, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey, according to the AP.
An HBO representative told The Hollywood Reporter that the company was conducting a "forensic review", and that it does not believe that its "e-mail system as a whole has been compromised".
