THERE’S MORE TO THE HBO BREACH THAN JUST MEETS THE GOT LEAK
HACKERS LEAK EXEC EMAILS AND DEMAND MONEY.
Not only did hackers manage to leak scripts of several episodes of the hugely popular HBO series Game Of Thrones, but also released a month’s worth of emails from one HBO executive’s inbox. They then sent a video letter addressed to HBO CEO Richard Plepler, demanding an undisclosed amount of money, to be paid in Bitcoin, or they would disclose more sensitive information. HBO says a forensic investigation is ongoing and further leaks could be possible.
