For those who don’t know, HBO had suffered a massive hack after becoming the target of a hacker group who calls itself Mr. Smith. As per the claims made by the hackers, they had obtained 1.5TB of data after a 6-months long attack.
The hackers have made demands and asked for a 6-month salary in bitcoin, which turns out to be about $6 million to $7.5 million. It was also revealed that, in the past, HBO tried to stop the leaks by offering $250,000 for “finding out vulnerabilities in HBO’s systems.”
