The hackers who have been haunting HBO are not apparently going away, despite a reported $250,000 offer from the network. Several of the new seasons were scheduled to kick off this week, with Curb coming in October. Among the leaked episodes are Curb Your Enthusiasm, Ballers, Insecure, Barry, and The Deuce episodes.
HBO confirmed the leak with the following statement:
The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in.
“We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released. It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in. Obviously, no company wants their proprietary information stolen and released on the internet. Transparency with our employees, partners, and the creative talent that works with us has been our focus throughout this incident and will remain our focus as we move forward. This incident has not deterred us from ensuring HBO continues to do what we do best.”
