Game of Thrones Leaks “Carried Out By Former Iranian Military Hacker”

A man who leaked confidential Game of Thrones information and unaired HBO shows has been charged by the Department of Justice. Behzad Mesri, an Iranian national, is said to have demanded $6 million in Bitcoin from HBO. US authorities are warning that while he's currently at large, for Mesri "winter will come."

Late July it was reported that hackers had stolen proprietary information from media giant HBO.

The haul was said to include confidential details of the then-unreleased fourth episode of the latest Game of Thrones season, plus episodes of Ballers, Barry, Insecure, and Room 104.

In a statement last evening, Joon H. Kim, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Field Division of the FBI, announced the unsealing of an indictment charging a 29-year-old man with offenses carried out against HBO.
