As HBO refused to meet the hacking group’s demanded of approximately $6.5 million worth of Bitcoin, the group has revealed the climax of the Game of Throne Season 7 in a bid to dilute the expectations on the final episode and thus create a viewership loss to the company.
Ending the suspense that kept the millions of fans on toes, HBO hackers have reportedly leaked the climax of the ongoing season seven of Game of Thrones Just a day before the last episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 is set to hit the screens.
HBO hackers calling themselves Mr Smith have leaked the climax of the ongoing season, thus ending the suspense that kept the millions of fans on toes.
According to a report in The Independent, “a detailed outline of every episode in season 7 include the finale, intended for internal use and dated April 2016 was posted on Reddit’s Game of Thrones spoilers-dedicated subreddit, Freefolk, apparently originating from the HBO hack”.
In response, HBO has said the hackers may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. “That’s a game we’re not going to participate in,” HBO was quoted as saying.
