Hacker group threatens to leak GoT season finale

The group, which identifies itself as the Mr Smith Group, also claimed to have access to several HBO social media accounts, including the Twitter and Instagram pages for shows like Westworld and Game of Thrones. And numerous HBO Twitter accounts have been hacked earlier this week.

After a series of hacks, accidental leaks and social media account takeovers, the malicious hackers are back and this time they are threatening to release the season finale of GOT Season 7. We could also probably argue the hacks and leaks have only increased hype for Game of Thrones this season, especially - ironically enough - on social networks, so it's probable that HBO will just weather the storm, though I believe HBO is working with law enforcement.

Now the hackers have threatened that they release the finale of the GoT season 7 before the due date.

HBO told Mashable: "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 hackers have warned that "Be ready for GOT S& E6 &E7 as soon as possible".

Even if it looked just like a simple post, in the modified video, people added other characters from "Game of Thrones", transforming it into a amusing viral video. The 8th season is said to be the last season of the HBO TV series, and it will also be the shortest ever, as the show creators have said it will only be six episodes long.

Watch the sixth episode tonight on HBO. So far, with only two episodes left for season seven, here is what is expected to happen in the episodes to come.

However, it is rumored that these episodes will be supersized - a rumor which HBO has yet to confirm officially.
