HBO hackers release outline for next 'Game of Thrones,' make ransom demands

12 August 2017

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.

The newly leaked files apparently contain extensive information on Game Of Thrones including castings, script summaries, including a detailed summary of the episode that is slated to air on Sunday (13 August).

Rafa, bidding to reclaim the No.1 ranking in Montreal , is stunned by 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov in a thrilling finish. I play really bad . "On match point, when I hit that double right before it, I mean, my ears nearly popped".

A week after EW first reported that HBO was the victim of a major cyber attack, the hackers have upped the ante by releasing the emails of a network executive and demanding payment. They demanded that the network pay "our six-month salary in bitcoin", adding that they will only deal with Plepler directly.

Now in an attempt to prevent the situation from escalating further, Varietyreports that the network has offered the hackers responsible for the breach a $250,000 ransom payment.

It's in our hands: if the players stick to their high-octane style they can beat anyone - which Ranieri didn't quite get. It began with that great ceremony of doom, the Community Shield: welcoming winter back in the middle of August.

HBO now has to decide whether to pay up, try to somehow stop the hackers from leaking, or risk losing even more valuable intellectual property. Actually, the most recent episode, "The Spoils of War", was leaked about a week before its premiere. HBO didn't immediately say what else the hackers may have taken, but CEO Richard Plepler said in an email to employees the hack had included "stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming".

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.

HBO has already acknowledged the theft and said that the network is continuing the investigation with the help of the police and some cybersecurity experts.
