As has happened several times throughout this penultimate jaunt through Westeros, details pertaining to tomorrow night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” have been leaked by the Mr. Smith hacking group. Mashable says it has been contacted by said episode-stealers with a precise description of what happens in tomorrow nights “The Dragon and the Wolf” — and has chosen not to publish that information.
The site reached out to HBO, which repeated a previous statement: “The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention,” it says in part. “That’s a game we’re not going to participate in.” Several episodes from this season of “Thrones” have leaked early online, including last week’s highly eventful “Beyond the Wall”; as such, spoilers have been an issue for fans.
Mr. Smith has demanded some $6.5 million in Bitcoin from HBO. “We know exactly what HBO and shoemakers around are doing now,” the group told Mashable in a statement. “Unlike HBO, we never getting surprised. Pattern analysis of HBO’s silly hidden acts are as we expected. We eagerly waiting for Fireye’s report … tell them to hurry up.” Read the full report here, and be careful to avoid spoilers.
