Game Of Thrones fans go wild over leaked sixth episode

Game Of Thrones fans go wild over leaked sixth episode

The episode was online for an hour, long enough for people to see it and share it on social media. Hackers didn't leak Game of Thrones episodes, but they leaked a bunch of unaired episodes from other HBO productions, internal emails, scripts, internal network passwords, and others [leak 1, leak 2, leak 3].

It is not the first time that an episode of the series has been leaked.

The message was re-tweeted at least 144 times before it was taken down, but showed HBO needs an online security upgrade. HBO said a third-party vendor was responsible this time around, and this has nothing to do with the much-publicized HBO hack from the end of July. HBO is yet to respond and give a statement regarding the error and leak.

The episode is titled "Death is the Enemy", and was scheduled to air on Sunday, August 20.

The successor to Coffee Lake, which will go by the codename Ice Lake, is supposed to become a 10nm+ part. Ice Lake is scheduled to arrive by or before 2019 and will be followed by Tiger Lake.

HBO has been the victim of hacking in recent weeks in the United States. Plagued by a series of hacks, "Game of Thrones" was beset by another leak when HBO Spain "accidentally" broadcasted next week's episode of season 7 of the cult TV show.

A Reddit thread on the ' freefolk' community claims that HBO Spain aired episode 6 in all its entirety.

Seems like "Game Of Thrones" leaks is not ending anytime soon. Meanwhile, four people have been arrested in Mumbai in connection with the previous leak.

Screenshots and clips from the episode began circulating online early Wednesday morning, while the full episode was uploaded to various torrent websites. After a lot of drama, the two parts got circulated on streaming site Daily motion, but these were removed slowly after copyright complain from HBO.
