THERE’S MORE TO THE HBO BREACH THAN JUST MEETS THE GOT LEAK

TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT - [ SS ]

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.
