What an awful month it's been for HBO. After hackers leaked Game of Thrones stars' personal details, as well as an episode from the ongoing season 7, it appears the same group behind the attacks has now compromised the television network's social media accounts.
The hackers, who operate under the name of 'OurMine', assumed control of HBO's Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as the social channels for Game of Thrones and Westworld. One of the since deleted tweets read: “OurMine are here. We are just testing your security." The following message tried to get the hashtag "#HBOleak" trending.
As Mashable reports, the group claims to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of data from the network and yesterday released documents of what they're calling the "4th Wave HBO Leak." According to the article, the files in this dump "contain everything from Westworld Season 2 shooting schedules to 27 separate Game of Thrones Season 7 'shooting [diaries]' — along with plenty of other inside information." The hackers are thought to be demanding around $6.5 million in Bitcoin from HBO in exchange for not sharing the files.
But it's been an all-round nightmare for HBO. Yesterday, HBO Spain accidentally unleashed the forthcoming episode of Game of Thrones.
