The 1.5 terabytes of data hacked by the Mr. Smith group from HBO contain a lot of information about shows of the network such as “West Word” Season 2 and “Game of Thrones” Season 7. According to Mashable, which was provided by the hacker portions of the 4th Wave HBO leak, it included 27 separate “Game of Thrones shooting diaries and inside information, and the shooting schedules of “West World.”

However, the leak excluded spoilers about the “Game of Thrones” dragons since the hacked data apparently do not contain any actual “GoT” episodes. To prevent hackers from stealing further any data from “Game of Thrones,” actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau – Jamie Lannister in the popular HBO series – proposed to the show’s producers to stop emailing the series episodes to the cast.

Hard copy

He instead suggested that the actors and everyone else involved in the show to be given hard copies of the script, The New York Daily News reported. Coster-Waldau noted that the biggest crimes now are credit card fraud and other offenses involving the digital world. “So we got to go back to cash,” he said.

Because the popular HBO series is shot in different countries and the cast also come from various nations, the suggestion of Coster-Waldau would be challenging to the series producer and production staff. Under the present system, the cast needed to open several email accounts to get the script on time.

No comment

HBO declined to comment if the leaked information that the hackers provided media are legitimate because there is an ongoing investigation on the incident. In the case of “West World,” Mashable reported that based on the detailed production calendar leaked by the Mr.

Smith group, spoilers about the series could be gathered.

Because HBO had stated in a previous statement that it would not negotiate with the hackers, who had been demanding roughly $6.5 million in Bitcoins, the Mr. Smith group shared the fourth round of HBO leaks on Aug. 16 to pressure the company to pay up. The cyber criminals also hacked the social media accounts of HBO and shared only the login details such as the passwords to its three social media accounts in Instagram and Giphy.

HBO said it is working with law enforcers and outside cyber security companies to investigate the hacking. “Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold,” HBO said in a statement.
