San Francisco: As HBO struggles to stop "Game of Thrones" (GoT) leaks and tackle hackers' ransom threats, another hacker group has broken into the TV company's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

OurMine has a reputation for hacking high profile Twitter accounts.

An unaired episode of "Game of Thrones" leaked online after it was mistakenly made available by the HBO network's Spanish arm. The message was reportedly posted on other HBO-owned Twitter accounts as well.

Past year it compromised Netflix, as well as Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and Google chief executive Sundar Pichai. However, HBO managed to scrap the offending tweets shortly after they were posted.

In a blunder which will make online pirates rejoice, HBO Spain has accidentally broadcast Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 four days early [five days for viewers in Thailand].

Vantiv, Inc. (VNTV) Lifted to "Buy" at BidaskClub
The firm owned 95,704 shares of the business services provider's stock after buying an additional 17,738 shares during the period. Arrowstreet Capital, Limited Partnership downsized its stake by selling 94,021 shares a decrease of 30.0% in the quarter.

The episode was available to watch for more than one hour before being removed.

Footage from the episode was posted on Reddit via YouTube, Instagram, Twitch and other streaming services, before being taken down.

The trailer for the highly anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones has been released.

This isn't the first time an episode from the new series of Game of Thrones has been leaked. That led HBO to discontinue distributing review screeners on DVD.

Later, people started downloading "GoT" Episode 4 and sharing the clip with friends on various social media platforms. In that case, still-unidentified hackers stole upwards of 1.5 terabytes of data and have engaged in cyber-extortion, threatening to release more stolen material unless HBO paid several million dollars in Bitcoin.
