Without a doubt, those HBO Hackers leaked season 7 scenes of Game Of Thrones, yet there's another considerably more genuine motivation behind why the on-screen character who plays Jaime Lannister is stressed over this most recent hack. As Nikolaj Coster-Waldau disclosed to The Daily Beast, alongside taking Game Of Thrones scenes and contents, the hack additionally included individual data of the GOT cast.
What's actually funny is how Coster-Waldau found out about this . "A couple of weeks ago, I get a call from one of the HBO execs and they go, 'Hey! How are you?'" he told The Daily Beast. "And at first I was thinking, 'Oh, I'm being killed off [Thrones]! I'm not going to make it to Season 8.'"
Don't worry, the Kingslayer is safe, at least for now. Instead, the HBO exec regretfully informed him that the network had been hacked and all of the cast's info might have been leaked. "And I went, What? And they said, 'Oh, your emails, your phone numbers, all of the info is out there', Coster-Waldau remembered. "I said, 'That's not good! What are we gonna do?' And they go, 'Well, we don't know.'
The most noticeably bad part is, Coster-Waldau still doesn't generally know whether his data was spilled, so he presently can't seem to change his telephone number, email or Visa data. "All things considered, he said "Well, I'm waiting to find out," he said. "[HBO] told us they were gonna call us and let us know what to do, and they haven't. So I guess they're still trying to figure it out."
It's as yet indistinct precisely what these HBO hackers stole. They claim to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of information, which incorporates up and coming scenes of Game of Thrones, Ballers, and Room 104; and messages from HBO executives.
While HBO tries to work out how to better secure itself, Coster-Waldau has a basic recommendation of how HBO can prevent these leaks breaks from occurring again, "I think they're basically going to go back to hand-delivering and just giving us scripts," he said. "Just give us the hard copies instead of all this email and digital stuff. I think that's what's going to happen in a few years' time because you know, you talk to cops on the street, 'What's the biggest crime now?' It's all credit card fraud. It's all that stuff. It's digital. So we got to go back to cash."
