Game of Thrones episode leaked, Star India responsible this time

Friday morning, several media outlets reported that Game of Thrones season 7 episode 4 has now been leaked online.

"HBO can confirm that the leaked episode was not a part of the recent hack", an HBO spokesperson told the publication.

They also stated that they are going to take this matter seriously and the perpetrators will face legal remedial actions.

The hack has seen episodes of Ballers and Room 104 apparently released online in addition to written material from Game of Thrones, with more promised to be "coming soon".

Well, if you wanna make HBO mad, you can now watch Sunday's Game of Thrones episode a few days early.

This isn't the first time HBO has been subject to a hack - and definitely not the first time "Game of Thrones" was the target.

Star India, HBO's distribution partners, has claimed responsibility for the leak of the Game of Thrones episode 4.

According to various reports, the leaked episode is a low-quality video but genuine. Someone at distribution partner Star India is thought to be responsible for the episode's "early" airing.

Upcoming episodes of numerous HBO series and at least one script have been put online following a major cyber attack. The leaking of "to be aired" GoT episode seems to be the follow up on the same threat.

Mashable reports that the episode, "The Spoils of War", surfaced on a forum devoted to the hit fantasy drama, where it was characterized by the poster as a "Gift from Pakistan". You just don't want to be handling the relationship with HBO for Star India right now.
