HBO Hackers Leak Top Executive's Emails

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.

Hackers who have leaked Game of Thrones scripts and other data from entertainment company HBO have released a note demanding a ransom payment. Another document appears to contain the confidential cast list for "Game of Thrones", listing personal cellphone numbers and email addresses for actors such as Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Emilia Clark.

This round includes scripts for the first four episodes of the current Game of Thrones season, as well as the script of the yet-to-air fifth episode, all watermarked with the hackers' motto, "HBO is Falling". But until now, they hadn't revealed their motive.

Adding, "We continue to work around the clock with outside cybersecurity firms and law enforcement to resolve the incident". To stop the leaks, the purported hackers demanded "our six-month salary in bitcoin", which they implied is at least $6m (€5.1m).

An HBO spokesman declined to discuss details of the hack.

"HBO believed that further leaks might emerge from this cyber incident when we confirmed it last week", HBO's statement reads. The hackers aren't shown in the clip.

A forensic investigation is ongoing and HBO is still reviewing what data has been leaked. The report didn't identify the executive or the contents of the emails.

"We successfully breached into your huge network", the hackers write in the video.

The hackers claim to have taken 1.5TB of data - the equivalent to several TV series box sets or millions of documents - but HBO said that it doesn't believe its email system as a whole has been compromised, although it did acknowledge the theft of "proprietary information".
