An individual using the name “Mr. Smith” has leaked a fresh cache of stolen HBO files, including documents related to ‘Game of Thrones’, online, one week after HBO confirmed that it had been hacked.
The latest “dump includes scripts from five Game of Thrones episodes, including one upcoming episode, and a month’s worth of email from the account of an HBO programming executive,” the Associated Press reported.
HBO, which previously acknowledged the theft of “proprietary information,” said it is continuing to investigate and is working with police and cybersecurity experts.
Last week, the fourth episode of the show’s season 7 was leaked online, with speculation suggesting that the leak originated from Star India.
The episode – titled “The Spoils of War” – was made available on social news aggregation and discussion website Reddit, days before it was originally scheduled to air.-Web Desk
