Star India held responsible 'Game of Thrones' episode four leak

Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones has leaked online just days after reports emerged that hackers breached HBO's computer systems. And the Verge has confirmed that it is a genuine, low-quality version of Episode Four with a watermark. "This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action", the spokesman told The Verge.

The hackers had leaked unreleased episodes of HBO's shows Ballers and Room 104.

This isn't the first time a Game of Thrones episode got leaked before its broadcast date. HBO made a decision to scrap screeners for season 7, but it appears this is the first time an episode has leaked due to a security breach at the network. Seven had a good run, with episodes 1 to 3 staying under wraps, but the fourth episode, titled "The Spoils of War", was compromised sometime on the morning of 4 August.

In fact, both Butowsky and Spicer claim that the president never actually had any contact with Butowsky or saw a draft. Butowsky told CNN that "the lawsuit is bulls**t" and said "Wigdor pulled this out of his butt to make money".

An HBO representative confirmed to HuffPost that the recent leak is not part of the larger data breach of the network's servers. So we can't necessarily blame hackers for this one, but rather some jerk from one of HBO's distribution partners.

Entertainment Weekly added the episode may have leaked from Star India, one of HBO's worldwide network partners.

It is not the first time that episode of "Game of Thrones" has been leaked.

And now, the fourth episode has reportedly leaked online ahead of its official broadcast on HBO in the USA and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom at the end of this week.

In a company email obtained by Entertainment Weekly Monday, HBO CEO Richard Plepler assured employees that the initial "cyber incident" was being taken seriously.

We've reached out to HBO for comment on the reported leak, and will update this post if we hear back.
