Star India confirms leak

07 August 2017, 01:00 | Dawn Berry

The 4th episode of season 7 has leaked online without getting aired on TV.

Mobile comparison website "Smartprix" on Friday spotted a direct link to the MP4 of the episode at Star India's own distribution site, The Verge tech website reported. "This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action", the report added. This isn't the first time Games Of Thrones has been leaked online. In statements to journalists, the hackers said they stole over 1.5TB of data from HBO servers.

Previously, it was unclear if the HBO hack had resulted in the theft of any unaired full episodes of Game of Thrones.

HBO's Game of Thrones is no stranger to leaks and piracy.

The Season 7 leak appears to have originated from one of HBO's worldwide distribution partners, Star India, whose watermark is visible on the video online. Because nothing can really be erased from the internet, although the episode is still circulating around shady parts of the web and spoilers abound in forums.

Samsung officially introduces the SM-G9298 flip phone
There are many sensors on board, some of which include an acceleration sensor, a gyroscope, and a barometric pressure sensor. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the flip phone does not come with a dedicated button for Samsung's Bixby.

HBO declined to specify what materials had been targetted in the hack, although episodes of Ballers and Room 104 were rumoured to have been stolen.

While most copies are pulled offline quickly, presumably by HBO itself, the unreleased fourth episode of season 7 is still widely available.

The version posted online is watermarked, "For internal viewing only", and bears the words "Star India", which is GoT 's broadcaster in India. However, not to confuse this with the previous hack, HBO confirmed that the leaking of episode four has nothing to do with the data hack.

According to Gadgets 360, the leaked episode has the date tag from the release of the new season, signaling its genuineness.
