"We successfully breached into your huge network..."

The latest leak includes another half-gigabyte sample of the group's stolen digital goods; it claims to have 1.5 terabytes in all.

The hacker or hackers behind the HBO data breach have posted online a publicly accessible link to a cache of internal documents, including a script summary of an upcoming Game of Thrones episode and a month's worth of emails from the inbox of one of the company's executives.

HBO's all-too-public hacker nightmare began last week, when the unnamed attackers sent their first notice to reporters, claiming to have a stolen stockpile of the company's secrets.

The "confidential" files included data on the current season of GoT, including the script summary of episode five, casting reveals and marketing materials.

HBO's chief said on Wednesday that the company is conducting a forensic review of its computer systems to better understand the scope of a cyber attack that surfaced over the weekend.

In a video directed to HBO CEO Richard Plepler, the hackers - who use the pseudonym "Mr. Smith" - used white text on a black background to threaten further disclosures if HBO doesn't pay up.

HBO, which previously acknowledged the theft of "proprietary information", says it's continuing to investigate and is working with police and cybersecurity experts.

Additionally, one leaked document allegedly includes the personal information (email addresses and phone numbers) of several Game of Thrones stars, including Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey.

HBO said its forensic review of the incident is ongoing and noted that it believed further leaks were forthcoming. Meanwhile, our dedicated employees continue to focus on delivering the high quality of entertainment and service for which we are known. The report didn't identify the executive or the contents of the emails.
