HBO is having a torrid time of late. First, the hackers broke into their security systems and stole 1.5 terabytes of data. Then they leaked unaired episodes of TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Room 104, Ballers and Barry as well as personal & confidential information like emails and phone numbers of Game of Thrones stars. To make matters worse, two episodes of Thrones leaked ahead of time due to mistakes committed by HBO and its distribution partners. And now, hackers have gotten hold of network’s several twitter accounts.
Hacking group OurMine recently broke into HBO’s various twitter accounts, including those of shows like Girls and Game of Thrones, and tried to get #HBOHacked trending. The hackers also posted the following message:
“Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security.”
The messages were soon deleted and HBO regained access to their accounts.
