The pirates are at it again. According to reports, a piracy ring announced that it has stolen the script and episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’. The script is of an unaired episode. HBO has had this experience earlier too. Along with Game of Thrones, upcoming episodes of ‘Ballers’ and ‘Room 104’ have also made their way to the pirates. The pirates have contacted journalists and even confirmed that they have much more stolen content which they will give out soon.
In a statement, HBO chairman Richard Plepter confirmed what he termed a ‘cyber incident’. He also said that investigations have already begun and HBO was working with law enforcement and cyber-security firms. Meanwhile, HBO has not commented on what exactly has been stolen.
In 2015, pirates stole 4 episodes of the show’s fifth season. Since then, the makers decided not to send screened copies to journalists.
