Latest Game of Thrones (GoT S07E04) torrent titled The Spoils of War leaks online onto the Internet web just a day after HBO hack. Here are the details.
It’s not that easy to companies instantly recover and gain the composure after a large-scale data breach, as HBO is currently in that situation finding out to its detriment. Recently we brought you the news that HBO’s servers had been compromised with almost 1.5 terabytes of data being stolen, including the scripts and storyboards pertaining to the next episode “The Spoils of War” season 7. Things have now one step further with that drama with a low-quality copy of that full episode now surfacing online for all to see ahead of the episode airing on Sunday.
HBO has been extremely busy issuing a high number of DCMA cease and desist notices to try and get as much of the stolen content offline as possible. That initially looked as though those issuing were working as GoT fans had only been able to see a script from April 2016 as well as a homemade storyboard video leaked to YouTube. Now that the same took a dramatic turn today, with various Google Drive links being shared via Reddit as well as on Torrent trackers which essentially give everyone with an internet connection early access to the full Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 “The Spoils of War” part.
What’s the surprising and interesting thing here is that the distributed low-quality video wasn’t originally obtained through the recent successful hacking of HBO’s servers, instead, is said to have actually come from one of HBO’s distribution partners. It’s not entirely difficult to ascertain which distribution partner is responsible for the video considering the Star India logo is watermarked across the video file which is appearing as part of the links shared through social media.
Although the HBO hackers managed to grab a reported 15TB of data from HBO’s servers it would seem that they didn’t actually manage to get any full episodes of GoT which could significantly spoil the current storyline for hardcore fans. With that said, it’s also difficult to mitigate against leaks such as this one which has come directly from distribution partners. Interestingly enough, the full episode, or any episode for that matter, wasn’t really obtained as part of the HBO hack but nevertheless, it’s still a huge headache for HBO when you take into consideration the company now needs to start an investigation into how this has happened with a trusted partner such as Star India.
