Email System Likely Not Affected in Monday Hack Attack — HBO

Share

Because the network typically sells its service through cable or satellite operators, it has not traditionally collected credit card information and other details about its customers.

In an email to employees this week, Mr. Plepler wrote, "Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling and disturbing for all of us".

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. The hackers had originally contacted media revealing their exploits and linking to what they stole: Episodes of current shows Ballers, Insecure and Room 104, as well as two from Bill Hader's hitman comedy series Barry that isn't expected to air til 2018. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The hacker found "multiple points of entry" into the company's data. "As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully".

However, due to an ominous email sent to reporters from an anonymous address, it is quite possible an unofficial, illicit premiere could be coming soon.

HBO confirmed that it was the victim of a cyber attack, in which proprietary information was leaked to the public. What's its name? Oh I forget to tell. Enjoy it & spread the words. In particular, the Season 7 premiere "Dragonstone" has broken records everywhere and is about to surpass a monumental 30 million views across the USA on all platforms. For instance, when hackers accessed unreleased episodes of "Orange is the New Black", through a third-party production company, hackers claimed Netflix did not pay their ransom demand and they subsequently published the episodes online. However, the studio later claimed the hack was a hoax and the movie was never leaked online early.

To add to the hacked episodes leaked online are a number of scripts and summaries for episodes three and four of the seventh season of "Game of Thrones". Just a couple weeks ago, a Thrones trailer to be screened at Comic-Con leaked onto YouTube in advance of its release.
