Posted on: Sep-2017 | By: 9Dimen Group | Electronics

HBO is currently in a situation of great stress owing to the breaching of its critical scripts online. The global entertainment market is currently under great stress owing to the security issues persisting in the various entertainment organizations. After the hacking of Game of Thrones season 7 fourth episode’s script, Time Warner Inc. cable network, which is responsible for broadcasting the series, is in trouble.

The investigation after the disclosure of the data breach is still on. Game of Thrones is a series that people from all across the globe love to watch. The hacking of its script is a big blow to the diehard fans. Hence, HBO has taken up the initiative of encouraging forensic review in order to get hold of the culprits. The law enforcement and cybersecurity experts have taken up the initiative of working together and finding out a robust solution against such situations from arising again.

This situation has come up during the time when Time Warner is in anticipation of the regulatory approval for selling itself to AT&T Inc at a deal of $85.4 Billion by the end of October. This cyber attack has put the organization in great jeopardy now. HBO had its hackers post the breached files online and demand for bitcoin ransom for prohibiting further more releases. According to the email sent by the hackers, they had stolen a number of scripts, human resource documents, contracts, and budget details that are of great importance to the company. The hackers demand for ransom in barter of the critical information has got the HBO officials thinking hard.

The people are now doubtful regarding the online security owing to constant hacking cases taking place nowadays. This probing matter is something the Federal Bureau of Investigation is planning to look into. After the loss of almost 1.5 Terabytes of data and online script leaking of the upcoming episodes of Game of Thrones, Ballers, and Room 104 is something the global market and the people haven’t expected to happen. Hence, it is the duty of the global market and the government to take stringent measures and set up strict norms so as to avoid further such hacking from occurring in the near future.
