HBO Hackers Reportedly Leak Emails, Demand Money

A month’s worth of emails has been leaked by HBO Hackers, that too from an executive at the company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Take that hackers, as they have already released and shared Game of Thrones season 7 episode 4 “The Spoils of War” via torrents, just days after HBO hack which revealed the script. Hackers behind the hack of HBO release what appears to be the emails from an HBO executive’s inbox.

The hackers who posted several of HBO’s new episodes and a “Game of Thronesscript online in late July have published a month’s worth of emails from the Inbox of one of the entertainment company’s executives. However, the report didn’t identify the executive or the contents of the emails. But hackers also addressed a video letter to HBO CEO Richard Plepler that demands the company demand payment of money, although the figure was redacted, according to the reporter.

We successfully breached into your huge network. … HBO was one of our difficult targets to deal with but we succeeded (it took about 6 months),” the letter to Plepler said. The hackers said HBO marked their 17th victim, and only three have failed to pay.

The recent hack resulted in loss of valuable, jealously guarded content of HBO. Hackers claim to have stolen 1.5TB of data from the company, including the forthcoming episodes of “Ballers” and “Room 104,” and posting them online. Hackers also warned last month that more material was yet to come.

HBO said its forensic review of the incident is ongoing and noted that it believed further leaks were forthcoming. “While it has been reported that a number of emails have been made public, the review to date has not given us a reason to believe that our e-mail system as a whole has been compromised,” the company said in a statement.
