[MUSIC] Winter is here. It appears house HBO's wall has been breached. And by wall, it's like a firewall. So no major spoilers for any of you Game of Thrones fans out there, but it looks like HBO was the victim of a potentially major hack. The hackers responsible are claiming highly coveted information about upcoming episodes of Game of Thrones is part of the stolen data. An anonymous email sent to various outlets, and reporters announced the hack. Specifically name checking Game of Thrones as part of the planned leak. They say they have 1.5 terabytes Data which could be anything from on develop scripts to unreleased episodes of shows like game of thrones. There's also attempts private employee data was on making it stressful time for anyone at the company. HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler attempted to come in the storm in an email to employees stay in. Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests unquote. So while HBO is confirming that there was a breach they're not saying which shows were affected and what might have been taken. And if those hackers do make good on their threat to drop unreleased episodes of Game of Thrones, here's my advice. Don't watch them. Support the people who worked really hard to make a show we all enjoy. For Cnet.com I'm Ashley Esqueda. Be good humans. [MUSIC]
