New Game of Thrones episode leak wasn't part of HBO hack

"The Spoils of War", the fourth episode in the seventh season of what is arguably the world's most popular television show today, is now available to internet sleuths. A Star India spokesperson confirmed the leak in a statement to the same.

They also stated that they are going to take this matter seriously and the perpetrators will face legal remedial actions.

HBO has been trying to plug up leak after leak surrounding Game of Thrones this season, but the latest leak is the most dramatic. However, an insider at HBO believes the leak is not believed to part of the major hack of HBO.

HBO has had to fight a lot of leak-related battles when it comes to its star show, Game of Thrones.

HBO declined to specify what materials had been targetted in the hack, although episodes of Ballers and Room 104 were rumoured to have been stolen.

The leaked episode, "The Spoils of War", made the rounds on the spoiler-embracing Reddit community r/freefolk on Friday morning.

Last Sunday's episode was huge for GoT fans, who were excited about having two very important characters come face-to-face for the first time. It's unclear whether future Game of Thrones episodes will air online before their due date following this secondary leak targeting HBO.

Star India is a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox.

A watermark on the episode (see above), suggests the screener was intended for internal use at HBO. However, not to confuse this with the previous hack, HBO confirmed that the leaking of episode four has nothing to do with the data hack.

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