Hackers release more HBO episode shows

Long enough time to catch the hungry eyes of this highly popular show's fans.

"It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO", it said.

One wrote that "August is dark and full of spoilers" while another said the series has been "ruined by people".

One fan lamented having to avoid spoilers for several days, writing: "I usually have to go a day without #GameOfThrones spoilers ... but now I have to go for a week?!?"

"We have learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO Espana platforms", Tom Krogsgaard Nielsen told the BBC.

Earlier this month, episode 4 - titled "The Spoils of War" - was leaked.

Game of Thrones's next episode has been pirated and shared online in the latest leak to hit the fantasy TV series. Four individuals employed by Star India who had access to the files prior to release were arrested as a result of that leak.

"Nothing better than when you wake up and find out game of thrones has been leaked early".

Prime Focus Technologies said the leak "was not a system hack, but an illegal breach of obligations".

Time Warner Inc's (TWX.N) HBO said Sunday in an emailed statement that it was "not in communication with the hacker, and we're not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released".

For HBO's sake, fingers crossed the season finale doesn't get leaked, too.

Reports indicate that high-definition footage from the episode was initially posted to YouTube, the Daily Motion, Instagram and other social media sites.
