HBO has been threatened by hackers known as the Mr. Smith group. The group claims to have access to HBO on many different platforms and threaten the release of season seven’s finale unless a ransom is paid. The hackers who were responsible for the first HBO hacking – which included 1.5 terabytes of data being stolen, including GOT scripts have now revealed even more info, showing the grasp they are trying to maintain on HBO’s beloved series.
The Hackers have asked for 6.5 million in bitcoin ransom, otherwise the stolen episodes will be uploaded to the public. HBO says they wont budge on any of the demands made by these “Cyber terrorists”. Some fans feel that HBO needs to stand up and release the episode before the hackers, and take a much stronger stance against the group.
