Network cable is mostly attacked by Cyber attack and most of the entertainment companies pay the price. Now hackers has planned to damage HBO website where data has been encrypted and copied where as other shows and online videos have also been stolen.
As per estimated figures 1.5 terabytes data has been theft from HBO already, which includes upcoming episode of Ballers, Room 104 and most importantly script for upcoming episode Game of Thrones which is a threat as they can easily share on different social networks.
“HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” the network confirmed with E! News in a statement. “We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cyber security firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”
Richard Pleper CEO of HBO has recently sent an email to his employees on Monday Morning, alerting them of security breach, stating like this”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.”
After this message he also briefly discussed that anonymous hackers by sending emails “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.” as they mentioned in their email, they did it and copied the script of GOT(Games of Thrones).

HBO is unable to cope up the situation as Content of Games of Thrones has been copied and may easily be distributed illegally right before when episode would be aired online. It almost happens every year, during season five, first four episodes were leaked even before the DVDs, after that no advance screeners of GOT have been sent again.
