Tensions are high surrounding Game of Thrones episodes and scripts after hackers stole 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO's USA servers last month in a security breach roughly seven times the size of the infamous 2014 Sony hack.
It was reportedly available for on-demand customers for a full hour before it was removed but that was more than enough time for those crafty internet pirates to download it and share away.
Star India, one of HBO's distribution partners, claimed responsibility for the leaked episode's origin. A rather ironic fact when we know that despite all the hacks suffered by HBO lately, no episode has been leaked from the outside and the only episodes that have leaked are from internal sources. Now episode six has leaked online, but it looks to be from another source.
A third-party vendor uploaded the episode by mistake, and it was taken down after an hour, BuzzFeed reported. While at first you might thing that the hackers behind HBO's recent security breach are responsible for this leak, you'd be wrong. According to TVLine, HBO Spain accidentally posted the real episode when it mistakenly made it available to its Spanish subscribers many days before the official broadcast date.
A rep for HBO told ABC News in a statement, "We are not in communication with the hacker and we're not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released".
