HBO Hacker Leaks New Episodes Of Insecure And Curb Your Enthusiasm

Game of Thrones: Hackers leak email indicating HBO has agreed to negotiate and pay $250000

Among the other shows to have leaked were new comedy Insecure, which debuted last night (13 August), upcoming shows Barry and The Deuce, and Ballers, which is now airing its third season.

In addition to new episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, other shows were also affected, with Insecure, Ballers, Barry, and The Deuce all having episodes uploaded to online sharing services.

HBO has released a statement on Sunday following the leak and said "not in communication with the hacker, and we're not going to comment every time a new piece of informatin is released".

Now according to a leaked email from an IT employee that various news outlets had access to, it has been revealed that the network offered the hackers $250,000 in exchange for a one-week deadline extension on the ransom. Almost two weeks ago, HBO confirmed that hackers had penetrated its servers and stolen some "proprietary information". "That's a game we're not going to participate in", HBO added.

The same hackers have subsequently released two dumps of HBO material and demanded a multimillion-dollar ransom. The hacker also claimed to be in possession of balance sheets, personal contacts of cast members, Game Of Thrones scripts and record of e-mails exchanged between top HBO executives.

This latest breach comes less about a week after hackers leaked a Game of Thrones script.

The statement expressed HBO's defiance, stating that the network would not be intimidated by the recent cyberattack.

This contradicts a leaked memo from the hacker last week, where HBO supposedly offered a $250,000 "bounty payment". HBO was allegedly their 17th victim, and only three refused to pay so far.

Mr. Smith, the name being used by the hackers of HBO, who recently released a cache of the stolen files, have now demanded millions in ransom to prevent more such releases.

HBO emphasized that the focus at this point is transparency and the incident will not stop the network from doing what it does best.

This ain't the first time, either, with the hackers last month releasing the first episode of season 9 of the show.

Notably, HBO said the $250,000 were a bug bounty payment.
