HBO hackers threaten to release more content this Sunday

04 Août, 2017, 21:10 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Only 300 megabytes have been leaked thus far, so if the claim that 1.5 terabytes has been stolen is true, there is much more to come.

HBO provided the following statement: "HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information".

The breach, announced Sunday in an anonymous email to reporters ("HBO is falling", it warned), contains an alleged 1.5 terabytes of data-including future episodes of Dwayne Johnson-led Ballers and the Duplass brothers' new anthology series Room 104.

HBO continued to assess the extent of a cyberattack on its systems on Wednesday, working with law enforcement agencies and seeking to provide assurance to its employees. The perpetrators claim to have obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO's computer networks, while The Washington Post reports that USA officials believe much less data has been obtained than the infamous Sony hacking scandal.

In an email to HBO staff Wednesday, CEO Richard Plepler said the company's email system likely was not affected in Monday's hacking of the cable network. According to website TorrentFreak, citing data from piracy monitoring firm MUSO, the Season 7 premiere of "Game of Thrones" was pirated 90 million times, mostly from unauthorized streaming portals. "Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold". The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening.

HBO is not commenting on what content might have been stolen, confirming specific titles or the amount of data accessed. A security company hired by HBO to scrub search results for the hacked files from search engines has told Google that the hackers stole "thousands of Home Box Office (HBO) internal company documents". What's its name? Oh I forget to tell. This April, a hacker demanded a ransom from Netflix after claiming to have stolen 10 episodes of its popular drama Orange Is the New Black; a day later, the episodes were allegedly leaked.

The more successful a media product, the more vulnerable it is, said Michael Sulmeyer, cybersecurity project director at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University.
