HBO Insists Corp Emails "As A Whole" Have Not Been Hacked

HBO Game of Thrones hack prompts forensic review

Mr. Smith referenced this data dump as the group's second leak, confirming HBO's assumption that the two incidents from last week were not connected, and the group was responsible only for the first.

Additionally, one leaked document allegedly includes the personal information (email addresses and phone numbers) of several Game of Thrones stars, including Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey.

"HBO believed that further leaks might emerge from this cyber incident when we confirmed it last week", HBO's statement reads.

In a rambling letter published as a scrolling video set to the Game of Thrones score, the hackers have reproduced an ultimatum that they imply they've sent to HBO CEO Richard Plepler, demanding an amount of money (redacted from the published version of the letter) as ransom for the stolen data, which they'll otherwise continue to leak.

Norges Bank Lowers Its Holdings in Activision Blizzard, Inc (ATVI) Stock
Conatus Capital Management Lp sold 1.07 million shares as the company's stock rose 23.27% with the market. The stock of Hammerson plc (LON:HMSO) has "Overweight" rating given on Wednesday, May 31 by JP Morgan.

Hackers who have leaked scripts and an episode from hit HBO show Game Of Thrones (GoT) have reportedly demanded a ransom. "HBO was one of our hard targets to deal with but we succeeded". However, the Hollywood Reporter later removed that executive's name from their report.

"At this time, we do not believe that our email system as a whole has been compromised, but the forensic review is ongoing", he said.

To be exact, the hackers are expecting their "six-month salary" paid in Bitcoin, claiming they get from $12 to $15 million each year from blackmailing organizations like themselves, penetrated by them. According to the note, the group stole and is prepared to leak contracts and "mutual agreements", human resources documents, business and marketing strategies, IT infrastructure information, and other documents. They also claim that HBO marks their 17th target, and only three have failed to pay. You will see in future steps in our operation that we fulfill any promises made and any given word.
