Hackers behind the HBO attack claim to have stolen some 1.5 terabytes of data, which means this will turn into a full blown investigation. Leaking unseen Game of Thrones episodes would be bad enough, but there’s evidence that the hackers have released the personal financial data of a senior HBO executive, including his banking details and details about his health records.
We can only assume that the hack contains other employee data as well. HBO CEO reported a cyber security breach in an email to employees Monday morning, saying that there has been a breach that stole some proprietary information, including some programming and this is “disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us.” On the other hand, on another email outlet from the hackers claimed that we are “lucky” to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak.
