'Game Of Thrones' Leak May Have Been A Serious Bluff By HBO Hackers

News broke that HBO hackers had their hands on juicy Game of Thrones content over two weeks ago, but new evidence suggests the hack might not be as serious as once believed.
Last week, hackers reportedly requested a ransom payment of around $6 million in exchange for the Game of Thrones leak and other episode leaks of popular HBO shows. HBO responded to the hacker's request with its own, much lower offer of $250,000 as “bounty payment,” asking the hackers to extend the ransom payment deadline, according to messages obtained by Variety. According to the report from Variety, the offer HBO sent to hackers was intended to stall for time while the company assessed the seriousness of the hack. The message reportedly read, “You have the advantage of having surprised us. In the spirit of professional cooperation, we are asking you to extend your deadline for one week.” So far, few leaks from Game of Thrones Season 7 have actually surfaced on the internet.
