HBO hackers claim to have leaked Game of Thrones season 7 finale plot details

Mashable has chosen not to publish the explicit details of the data dump

Hacker group Mr Smith claims to have accessed plot details around the Game of Thrones season seven finale.

The collective sent an email to Mashable over the weekend, which the title says contained a data dump featuring plot summaries and outlines which appear to provide, in exact detail, just how this season will end.

Mashable has chosen not to publish the explicit details, mentioning that Mr Smith said in an email: "Game of Throne [sic] is over. Wait for major waves!!! RIP HB-Old."

Earlier, in a note to employees HBO chairman Richard Plepler wrote: “As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming."

The Game of Thrones season seven opener was pirated 90m times in three days. More recently, four individuals were arrested for leaking Game of Thrones episodes in India.
