HBO hackers leak episodes for Insecure and Curb Your Enthusiasm

It looks like for now there is no end to the HBO hacking spree as earlier today the group of hackers behind breaching the Network’s system and stealing a trove of data has leaked unaired episodes of  Curb Your Enthusiasm, Insecure, Ballers, Barry and The Deuce TV series, reports the Associated Press.

The latest leak does not include any new episodes of Game of Thrones but an episode of Insecure which was due to be released on Sunday. Another bad news for the network is that the leaked data also contains episodes belonging to Curb Your Enthusiasm, a popular TV series created by Larry David and due to make a come back in October this year.

Curb Your Enthusiasm was first aired back on October 15, 2000, and finished in 2011 after eight seasons.

It all started in July 2017, when hackers claimed to steal 1.5TB of data from the network and threatened to leak it online. After a few days, hackers started leaking sensitive documents belong to the company including an unreleased episode of Game of Thrones.

The data also contained personal, financial and social media login credentials of HBO’s Executive Vice President of Legal Affairs Viviane Eisenberg and phone numbers of GOT stars Emilia Clark, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage.

Furthermore, hackers demanded a multimillion dollar ransom from HBO and warned if their demands weren’t met they would end up leaking more data. In reply, according to Variety; HBO was willing to pay a sum of $250,000 “bounty payment” offer to the hackers.

However, after the latest leak, the media giant said that “The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in.”

It is unclear what’s next from the hackers but based on their previous leaks it’s easy to conclude that HBO is in big trouble.
