The most anticipated and thrilling series of the year, Games Of Throne might have a little problem as hackers have allegedly gotten a hold of about 1.5 terabytes of the series and are threatening to release it.
The hackers who are famous for the leak of Orange is the new black and also the threat that was given to Disney in early May for the release of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 sent an e-mail to HBO saying
“Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What’s its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones……!!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling.”
The chairman of HBO and CEO Richard Pleper has also released this statement to:
“As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming," he wrote. "Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests. The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of. As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully."
We hope they don’t release anything because we the #GOT fans hate spoilers J.
