The group who announced they hacked HBO last week have leaked new files from the company’s servers, via private emails to the press and a website for everyone else.
The new batch of files contains the script of episode 5 of Game of Thrones season 7, content from HBO’s email servers, and a copy of the ransom demand the hackers sent to HBO’s management.
Ransom Letter from hackers to HBO demanding millions to post all the data they have gathered from their hack.
I am Mr. Smith and I have the honor to inform you, on behalf of my colleagues, that we successfully breached in your huge network.
We confess that HBO was one of our difficult targets to deal with but we succeeded. (It took about 6 months).
By penetrating your Internal Network and other related platforms, we obtained your highly confidential Documents, IT related data, Scripts and etc. these data dump, as you will see, contains HBO’s Various Contracts, Mutual Agreements, Human resources, internal structure, International affiliates, Business strategies, International Marketing, IT infrastructures, producing films & Series (with very detail info!), budget detail for major operations, how you sell and how much!, various strategic insights in every aspects, confidential research, internal letters & Tax Evading Proofs! & Neilsen’s Dirty Job! & etc.
You concealed GOT7 very carefully so we can’t find it due to lack of time although we are so close. Instead, we produced some tiny mini-series of GOT7 for you which be able to shock the entire world!!! What we got from GOT 7 not only put an end to fate of this season but also corrupts your idea and efforts to season 8.
Our motives isn’t political nor financial. (Even we hate trump like other Americans do) Its like a game for us, we enjoy to get data. Money isn’t our main purpose.
(my colleagues argue with me about details given to you and length of this letter, but as there will be very few emails between us, I must assure you about what we have, what will be confronting you and what should be paid to settle down everything!!)
We honestly share what we got with you and frankly bring you our demand. We are white hat hackers and it’s very shameful if you compare us with some noisy & amateur blackhat ones like Darkoverload. You will see in future steps in our operation that we fulfill any promises made and any given word.
While the actual episode has not been published by the hackers, don’t be surprised if you see it pops up online anytime soon if their demands are not met by HBO.
