Iranian Hacker Charged in HBO Hacking That Included ‘Game of Thrones’ Script

FBI Assistant Director William Sweeney: “In the simplest of terms, he lurked in the alleyways of the Internet, identified the vulnerabilities of his victim, and pickpocketed their information from thousands of miles away. After he had successfully identified their proprietary secrets, he held their future for ransom.”

Even simpler: he remotely hacked HBO for ransom money 🙂

A hacker stole 1.5 terabytes of data and leaked several episodes of HBO’s shows while demanding $6 million in Bitcoin, according to U.S. authorities.
