After news earlier this week that HBO had been hacked, the latest episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ is leaked online in a separate incident. Rollo Ross reports.
(HBO) – Fantasy hit TV series ‘Game of Thrones’ may feature its fair share of hacking and slashing, but now the show itself has become the victim of a hack.
The fourth episode of the new season titled “Spoils of War” has been leaked online, causing headaches for HBO as well as spoiler-avoiding fans.
HBO’s distribution partner Star India revealed they were the source of the hack as the online version holds their watermark. They called it a “grave issue” and are threatening legal proceedings.
In a statement HBO revealed the incident is separate from a hack on the company that was disclosed earlier this week, in which hackers stole information as well as some programming.
The episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ will air as usual on Sunday night.
