Do you remember what happened just a few months ago when GOT’s latest season, along with other TV shows of HBO got leaked as a result of a massive cyber attack on HBO? The amount of data that was stolen through this cyber attack was too damn high and what pinched us the most, was the series of spoilers that was released ahead of every upcoming episode of GOT.
The Criminal Has Been Indicted
Actually, the problem was much bigger than just releasing the spoilers, as the confidential information on employees, unfinished scripts, and emails were also hacked. Moreover, the uploading of full episodes of GOT before their official release caused a great amount of financial loss to the producers. The good news is, that the culprit has been found and the indictment has been issued.
Who Was The Hacker?
‘Behzad Mesri’ from Iran, has been found as the culprit in this case who has a track record of previously working for Iranian military, according to the DOJ. What’s more intriguing, is that Mesri demanded $6 million worth of Bitcoin as a ransom, but he failed to achieve this dream!
