HBO plays down threat of hacked internal emails

04 Août, 2017, 21:14 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

HBO, which acknowledged Monday that hackers had broken into its systems and stolen "proprietary information", now says the attackers likely haven't breached the network's entire email system.

"Many people have expressed particular concern about our e-mail system", he wrote.

The HBO hack which saw scripts from Game Of Thrones stolen is now believed to be much worse than originally thought, with "thousands of documents" reportedly stolen. "At this time, we do not believe that our email system as a whole has been compromised, but the forensic review is ongoing", he said.

On July 27, HBO became victim to a sophisticated cyberattack which saw 1.5 terabytes of data stolen, including Game Of Thrones scripts and employee data.

According to Variety however, the hackers also stole "thousands of Home Box Office internal company documents".

Plepler's email was apparently meant to calm the nerves of the network's staff, and address what he called "an enormous amount of speculation in the media". "It is important to understand that, as is often the case, things you read may very well not be true", he wrote. As part of the leak, hackers also published a list of account user names and passwords of a senior executive Monday.

Sometimes when hackers steal data from companies, they seek a ransom in exchange for not publishing the data.

Plepler's note said that HBO would hire an outside firm to provide credit monitoring for employees, but did not explain why. He ended his email by asking employees to "continue to do the excellent work which defines this company across all departments and know that the appropriate teams are working round the clock to manage our way through this hard period".
