The FBI has been reportedly called in to investigate the HBO hack that saw spoilers for Game of Thrones and complete unseen episodes of other shows released in a massive data breach.
Hackers claimed to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of data and are threatening to leak even more content, it emerged, after the group illegally broke into HBO’s computer networks.
This is seven times as much data as was stolen from Sony in the 2014 hack, which involved roughly 200 gigabytes of data.
The hackers have apparently already leaked what appears to be the personal data of at least one senior HBO executive, including details of her finance and health plan.
Leaked stolen information also provided a link to the script for the fourth Game of Thrones episode along with unaired episodes of Ballers and Room 104, with the hackers promising that there was much more to come.
