Someone posted on twitter saying:
“Game of thrones has been the most illegally downloaded show on TV, so now the producers have decided to leak their series by themselves before it gets leaked by someone else”.
It seems someone has already succeeded in hacking into HBO before HBO leaks it’s movie. The hackers are renowned for their illegal activities online. Among the people who’ve fallen victim to them are :
- Google chief executive Sundar Pichai
- Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg
- Mark Zuckerberg’s sister Randi Zuckerberg
- Former Twitter boss Dick Costolo
- Young adult novelist Hank Green
- Buzz feed etc.
Guess who the hackers are? Answer: #OurMine
#OurMine took control of the main HBO Twitter account on Wednesday and posted it’s usual intro”
“Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security.”
GOT isn’t the only victims, as the Hackers have also leaked further sensitive information and files from the second season of the hit show Westworld, revealing shooting diaries, schedules and conceivable spoilers. They are demanding for a whooping sum of $6m (£4.6m) in ransom or they’d release some unreleased TV shows and other confidential information this month.
You know the crazy part? These guys dumped the personal contact details of Game of Thrones actors online alongside HBO network passwords and emails from the firm’s vice president for film programming. Can someone send me Daenerys Targaryen’s phone number?..lol
The files were distributed by somebody calling themselves “Mr Smith” saying:
“If history repeats itself HBO may never be the same again. Winter really is here.”
Well, HBO has stated that it won’t participate further with the hackers after first offering a $250,000 bug bounty, potentially as a stalling tactic.
