Game of Thrones fans were definitely surprised with the latest developments of the famous television series. The first three episodes of the latest season of Game of Thrones were filled with surprises and maybe some were not what Daenerys Targaryen fans wanted or expected. Daenerys ended up with no allies, as they were all killed or captured.
Of course, fans from all over the world are now curious to find out what will happen next. And they may be able to discover it sooner than what they imagined. It has been revealed that HBO has been the victim of a new hack, which involved leaking upcoming episodes and scripts of Game of Thrones. Entertainment Weekly reported that the hackers have by now shared online information about other HBO shows, including Ballers and Room 104.
The hackers claimed that they will release more information, so some facts regarding Game of Thrones might become available. Naturally, this is a very bad thing for HBO, which is widely known for its struggle to keep the secret on what will happen next on the famous television series, which has become known for its surprising and unexpected evolutions.
“HBO recently experienced a cyber-incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” an official statement from HBO indicated. “We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold,” the same statement added.
HBO has not officially released what type of data has been stolen by hackers, so it is yet to find out what hackers will expose. The leak was initially exposed through an anonymous email received by reporters. “Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What’s its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones……!!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling,” the email said.
Game of Thrones is without a doubt one of the most successful television series at the moment. The show has no less than 10 million viewers.
