Not to be outdone by the staff at HBO Spain, who accidentally released episode six of the show days before it was due to be officially broadcast, hackers have threatened to release the Game Of Thrones season seven finale.

According to Mashable, the hackers who were responsible for the original HBO hacking - in which 1.5 terabytes of data was stolen, including closely guarded GOT scripts - have now revealed even more info.

The group, who are calling themselves the Mr Smith Group, showed Mashable a number of newly leaked documents containing all kinds of information about new shows, such as the shooting schedules for West World and personal information of employees.

The attached email read: "If history repeats itself, HBO may NEVER be the same Again. Winter Really is here."

The group claims to have access to 'many HBO platforms' and warned: "Be ready for GOT S& E6 &E7 as soon as possible."

HBO told Mashable: "We are not in communication with the hacker and we're not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released.

"It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That's a game we're not going to participate in."


According to the website, the hackers are asking HBO for $6.5million (£5million) worth of bitcoin as a ransom, but, for now at least, it looks like HBO aren't going to be putting their hands in their pocket.
