HBO hackers allegedly release emails, 'Game of Thrones' summary

The next round of data stolen from HBO has reportedly been released.

Among the leaked information includes a summary of an upcoming “Game of Thrones” episode and a month of emails from an executive, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The materials, which were emailed to the trade outlet, included a video letter to company CEO Richard Plepler that said “We successfully breached into your huge network. … HBO was one of our difficult targets to deal with but we succeeded (it took about 6 months).”

The video also demanded a ransom of at least several million dollars to stop the hackers from releasing more information.

‘Game of Thrones’ episode reportedly leaks in wake of HBO hack

Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones” was leaked online earlier in the week, but a source told the Daily News that it was not related to the latest hack.

An estimated 1.5 terabytes of data was stolen from HBO, more than seven times as much as was stolen from Sony Pictures in 2014.

Sony co-chair Amy Pascal was forced out of the company following the hack.

“We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms,” HBO said in a statement.

“Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”
