LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – HBO confirmed Monday that the cable network was the target of a cyber attack in which some exclusive programming may have been stolen and leaked.
According to CBS News, the hackers claimed to have leaked written material for an upcoming episode of “Game of Thrones,” along with episodes for the HBO shows “Ballers” and “Room 104.”
The hackers allegedly took 1.5 terabytes of data, CBS News reports.
However, the network itself was not revealing what content was involved in the breach or the amount of data stolen.
In a statement, the network said the company had “recently” been hit by an attack “which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information.”
HBO said it “immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”
