According to several reports, personal phone numbers and home addresses of several cast members of Game of Thrones have been leaked online by hackers.
Game of Thrones is the very popular and super hit American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D B Weiss and being aired on HBO.
Last week, hackers broke into HBO’s servers and stole up to 1.5 terabytes of data including five draft scripts of the seventh season of Game of Thrones as well as footage of Ballers and Room 104.
The Verge reports that the leaked documents contain a file which includes the personal numbers and addresses, home and email both, of the cast members of season 7 including Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, and Kit Harington.
HBO is currently reviewing the exact range of data that has been leaked. HBO spokesperson Jeff Cusson told Wired, “We have no reason to believe that our email system as a whole has been compromised.”
According to The Guardian, the hackers have thus far released 3.45GB data and are threatening to release more if their demands are not met by HBO.
