'GoT' episode accidentally aired in Spain

Four people have been arrested in India for leaking the fourth episode from the current season of HBO's Game of Thrones which featured a battle sequence with a dragon

The last episode of the season was also leaked by HBO's partners in India. It wasn't, in the end, the hackers who gave the episode away, it was HBO itself, or at least a vendor who worked with the company.

This latest leak looks like an unintentional error, based on HBO's official comments on the matter, but it's still likely to result in tighter security practices across the network.

After receiving a complaint "we investigated the case and have arrested four individuals for unauthorised publication of the fourth episode from season seven", Deputy Commissioner of Police Akbar Pathan told AFP news agency.

HBO said Wednesday that due to an error the sixth episode of Games of Thrones' seventh season was shown a week ahead of schedule in Spain and Nordic countries. Titled as Death is the Enemy, the new episode will have Sansa Stark in several different settings, fresh reports say.

The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 7 may not have a title yet, but a good chunk of fans have already seen it.

This alleged leak comes less than two weeks after an unaired "Game of Thrones" episode made its way online through HBO's India distributor. There are still some buzz about Episode 7 leaks but we can't verify the same at this point of time.

This time, it was HBO Spain incorrectly airing episode 6 (telecast date: 20 August for the US) in place of episode 5. Even though "The Spoils of War" leaked in full, it was still the most-watched episode of Game of Thrones ever, until "Eastwatch" beat it the following week. Meanwhile, four people have been arrested in Mumbai in connection with the previous leak.

As long as there are shows as popular as Game of Thrones, hackers will attempt to steal content and post it early.
