Episodes, script leaked in HBO hack

Episodes, script leaked in HBO hack

The website used by the hackers to release the material has been inaccessible for days, making it challenging to analyze all of the leaked data.

According to Entertainment Weekly, upcoming episodes from multiple series-including Ballers and Room 104-as well as "at least one alleged script or treatment", have been put online already, with more supposedly still to come. The fact that you have law enforcement and a [cybersecurity] firm involved most likely means this will be a very large incident for HBO. "The biggest crackdown of cyber space time has begun".

An HBO spokesperson declined to comment on the authenticity of the screenshot, or any other data allegedly obtained by the hackers.

In its earnings report Wednesday, Time Warner said subscriptions to HBO jumped by $106 million, an increase of 8 percent. What's its name? Oh I forget to tell.

It's unclear what information hackers stole and potentially leaked.

US Hiring Maintains Strong Pace, Jobless Rate Falls to 4.3%
Compared with a year ago, the number of jobs has increased by 388,0000, driven by a surge in 354,000 full-time positions. A more encompassing rate that includes discouraged workers and the underemployed was unchanged at 8.6 percent.

Incredibly, this isn't related to the hack-it's just really unfortunate timing, as Vulture and other outlets have confirmed that "The Spoils of War" was acquired in a data breach from the show's Indian distributor, Star India-presumably from a different group of hackers who have yet to identify themselves. You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak.

Similarly, an anonymous hacker recently posted most of the fifth season of Netflix original Orange Is the New Black on file-sharing site The Pirate Bay, after the streaming service reportedly failed to pay a ransom. The North Korean government was believed to be behind that attack, while there has not been a state actor linked to the HBO attack.

HBO says it has been hacked, and that the culprits have procured some programming.HBO has had material rashly released online including screeners, cuts from overseas merchants and a Game of Thrones trailer, EW composes. HBO has been notoriously protective of its marquee drama, even ceasing the use of screeners after four episodes leaked ahead of the Season 5 premiere.

HBO has expressed an intent to offer its employees credit monitoring, which raises questions as to whether human resources records were accessed.
