Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey's cell phone numbers have reportedly been leaked online by Game of Thrones hackers as part of a multi-million dollar ransom request.

While HBO didn't confirm at the time what had been stolen in its entirety, the hackers alleged that they had 1.5TB of data in their possession. HBO spends $12 million for Market Research and $5 million for "GOT7′ advertisements. So include us in your advertisements". If their demands are not met, they claim to leak the entire series and more sensitive files from HBO.
