Earlier today, hackers leaked the fourth episode of Game of Thrones season 7 on Vidme, Google Drive, and The Pirate Bay. The company also revealed that they are taking immediate legal remedial action to protect themselves.
Mumbai: The Entertainment industry has always been a victim of illegal hacking and piracy, and the makers of Game Of Thrones have become victims of this threat for the second time. While additional episodes could leak from this particular distribution partner, it appears that the HBO hackers haven't managed to obtain full episodes.
This isn't the first time HBO has been subject to a hack - and definitely not the first time "Game of Thrones" was the target.
Though HBO finally stopped giving out screeners to the press for season 7, that doesn't seem to have kept it safe from leaks in this case. While that doesn't appear to have happened yet, HBO now has another leak to deal with. Earlier this year, the entire fifth season of Orange is the New Black was released online two months before the premiere date because Netflix refused to pay hackers the ransom.
The leaked scripts have so far been correct for the three episodes already telecasted, giving rise to a huge number of script based vlogs about upcoming episodes.

The cause of the colission is still unknown but authorities have launched an investigation. Seven of the injured were in a critical condition‚ said ER24 spokesman Werner Vermaak.
The Game of Thrones episode leaked today includes the watermark of Star India, one of HBO's Indian distributors.
It looks like HBO is having a pretty hard time safeguarding Game of Thrones and other TV shows.
The leaked "Game of Thrones" episode, entitled "The Spoils of War", is slated to air Friday evening on HBO. A low-quality version of the episode was leaked on Reddit and now available to everyone across the world ahead of its official release on Sunday, August 6.
