Hot on the heels of suggestions HBO were in discussions with hackers over ransoms and potential leaks, comes confirmation that several episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm have been leaked ahead of its October return.
Also leaked were the latest episode of Insecure, episodes of Ballers, plus upcoming episodes for Barry and The Deuce.
In a statement HBO did not indicate it would yield to pressure tactics.
”We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released,” the network said in a statement.
“It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in. Obviously, no company wants their proprietary information stolen and released on the internet. Transparency with our employees, partners, and the creative talent that works with us has been our focus throughout this incident and will remain our focus as we move forward.
“This incident has not deterred us from ensuring HBO continues to do what we do best.”
Last Thursday, a message HBO had sent the perpetrator after its initial communication with the network was also leaked, detailing a $250,000 “bounty payment” offer for identifying systems issues.
