Deadline

Last week, we wrote about the news of the cyber-attack on HBO.  The hackers claimed to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of data, including the script for Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4.

Emails that the hackers sent out to reporters implicated that the attack was benign, and the allegedly stolen script remained unreleased.

HBO publicly admitted that the hackers had accessed "proprietary information."


The Hollywood Reporter

A five-minute video letter was recently sent to HBO chief executive Richard Plepler, demanding a multimillion-dollar ransom to be payed within three days.

The hacker in the video, who called himself "Mr. Smith," demanded a ransom of HBO employees' six-month salary in the form of bitcoin.

Along with the video, the hackers have dumped 3.4 GB of data, including technical details (network and administrator passwords), emails from the network's Vice President, and drafts of five upcoming Game of Thrones scripts.  The hackers are threatening to release even more data if they are not given the requested amount of money.

The hackers claim that HBO is their 17th target, and that only three of their former targeted networks have refused to pay.
