Hackers Claim To Have Stolen 1.5 Terabytes From HBO

Yet, Neuman said, the breadth of data that the hackers said they accessed suggests that the vulnerability was more central to HBO.

HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler sent an internal memo to staff today urging calm as media begin to report out the sketchy details of a hack attack at the premium cabler.

The group says it has 1.5 terabytes of the broadcaster's data and has posted an alleged script of episode 4 of the fantasy drama's seventh season, now in mid-run.

Be that as it may, none of those episodes included hacking.Any interruption of this nature is clearly problematic, disrupting, and exasperating for every one of us.

"We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner's end to swiftly determine the cause", a Star India representative said in a statement, The Verge first reported. It further reads - "Yes, we hacked HBO and 1.5 TB of sensitive data and films is in our hands!"

However, HBO has refrained from comment.

That's the amount of data hackers claim to have stolen from HBO.

To put in context the 1.5 terabytes - or 1,500 gigabytes - claim, in the Sony case, about 200 gigabytes of data was released online, a damaging deluge that brought the studio to its knees and led to the ouster of then co-chair Amy Pascal. As proof, the email offered what appeared to be a genuine script for the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones as well as a treatment of the same episode.

Wallace also told NPR that there is no "concrete evidence" that Wheeler was misquoted by Zimmerman. Together, they investigated the death of Seth Rich , a DNC staffer who was murdered July 10, 2016.

A security contractor from IP Echelon hired by HBO to remove leaked material from online sources found that the hackers stole "thousands of Home Box Office (HBO) internal company documents", including employee data and possibly internal corporate email, in a situation that's reminiscent of the massive 2014 attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. HBO, a unit of Time Warner Inc., declined to elaborate on what specifically was stolen. At first and throughout the 90s and early 2000s, most hackers intended primarily on vandalism attacks rather than for making money.

Similarly, an anonymous hacker recently posted most of the fifth season of Netflix original Orange Is the New Black on file-sharing site The Pirate Bay, after the streaming service reportedly failed to pay a ransom.
