Besides script for an upcoming episode of Game of Thrones, Video for episodes of Ballers and Room 104 were also reportedly stolen.
“HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information. We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold,” the network said in a statement sent to Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news of the breach.
The videos “have apparently been put online,” the publication said without elaborating. The HBO statement didn’t detail any of the proprietary information that was taken.
In 2015, the first four episodes to GoT’s fifth season became available on torrent sites before being aired on the network. Since then, the network has stopped sending episodes to press and industry insiders in advance of their airing.
