The recent HBO hack has just taken an incredibly personal turn.
After releasing a couple of episodes of some HBO original series' the hacker group has now reportedly leaked more confidential information, including the personal phone numbers of some Game of Thrones stars.
According to The Guardian, the latest set of leaks contains scripts from new Game of Thrones episodes, confidential emails from HBO chief executive Richard Pelper and the personal phone numbers of stars like Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage.
The hackers sent a video message to Pelper this week, detailing the amount of property they have stolen. This list includes un-aired episodes of hit shows, as well as more confidential company information.
This message also asked for a ransom. The hacker group has asked Pelper and HBO to hand over the the bitcoin equivalent of their six-month salary. They claim that they make $12-$15 million each year, so they're demanding at least $6 million from HBO.
These hackers claim that HBO is their 17th target, and only three of their previous targets have refused to pay.0comments
