HBO hack could be biggest ever — Everything YOU need to know

How bad was that HBO hack? Here’s some perspective: Entertainment Weekly first reported the hackers obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from the company, which could make the hacking the biggest the film and television industry has ever seen.

Not all of the data has been released, though the hackers have promised that more leaks are “coming soon.” According to multiple reports, the group has already leaked episodes of Ballers plus the script for the next episode of Games of Thrones.

If the HBO hackers expose all 1.5 terabytes of stolen information, it would be seven times as much as the Sony hack. (For those of us who don’t speak data: 1.5 terabytes is equivalent to 1,500 gigabytes.)

Like Sony and Netflix who have recently been hacked — the hackers to set-up a failed ransom with HBO.  After the ransom attempt failed, here was the first official message the hackers published:

 Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What’s its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones……!!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling is falling.
