HBO investigates new cyber hack after Game of Thrones leak

Most recently a group of hackers said they had stolen 1.5TB of data, allegedly including episodes of Ballers, Room 104 and scripts from Game of Thrones episodes.

Europe announced that Episode 6 of this season was inadvertantly posted on the HBO Nordic and HBO España platforms.

A short teaser trailer for the upcoming episode was released on Sunday.

And it seems it's all thanks to HBO Spain, who according to viewers there accidentally aired episode six not five of the fantasy drama this week, even posting the episode online for an hour before removing.

News of the incident was immediately reported on social media and copies of the episode were reportedly available online later.

A group called OurMine appeared to take control of the HBO's main social media accounts, as well for shows such as Game of Thrones, in what was deemed a test of the network's security.

It seems like HBO is trying really hard for preventing episodes of the very popular show from getting leaked but all went in vain yesterday.

This caused fans of the series to react in various ways, with a lot of them were very eager to find out more about the upcoming Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 which officially airs on Sunday, August 20. Four people in India have been arrested in connection with the leaked episode.

Prime Focus Technologies accepted that the leakage had happened at its end and lodged an FIR against an employee alleging that he, along with another former employee and other persons, unauthorisedly gained access to the episode and leaked it. It also clarified that the leak had nothing to do with the cyber attack that shook HBO last month.
