HBO Trying To Acquire $250,000 In Bitcoin To Pay Hackers! (Video)

HBO offered $250,000 as a “bounty payment” to a hacker who stole TV show scripts from the company, according to an email obtained by CNBC, but a source familiar with the situation said it was just a “delay tactic.” Details of a data breach at HBO came to light last week. Scripts from shows such as “Game of Thrones” were leaked online ahead of Sunday’s episode. A hacker or group called “Mr. Smith” claimed responsibility and said they had around 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO. The hackers demanded money worth six months of their salary, claiming they make $12 million to $15 million from stealing intellectual property and blackmailing companies. Those hackers appear to have been engaged in email correspondence with HBO. Via Worldstarhiphop
