Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’re well aware of the HBO hack that’s been making headlines since July. The hackers claim to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of data, including unreleased episodes of various HBO shows, at least one Game of Thrones script, and personal information for cast members and executives. Westworld seemed to be safe, as there has been no leaked information about the series – that is, until now.
According to Mashable and other sites, the hackers have released another data dump that they are calling the “4th Wave HBO Leak.” The included files inside information, along with 27 Game of Thrones Season 7 “shooting [diaries]” and Westworld shooting schedules for season two. Apparently the Westworld production calendar is detailed enough to potentially glean spoilers – unfortunate news for a series in which mystery and secrecy is a huge part of its appeal.
A spokesperson for HBO has declined to comment on the legitimacy of the leaked data, stating that “[as] there is an ongoing investigation we will have no comment beyond the statements that are already out there.” The hackers have demanded around $6.5 million in Bitcoin from HBO to stop the leaks, but so far HBO has declined pay. Given the amount of data the hackers claim to have obtained, there could be much more information released in the weeks to come.
