This episode, reportedly, has been leaked from Star India, which is one of the partner networks of HBO. "The file has been taken down for violating GoogleDrive's [terms of service]".

It's still unclear if this leak is connected to Monday's hack, but it's possible that more HBO data could be released later this weekend. It is still not clear as to how and where the hack took place.

Plepler added that a "forensic review" is still ongoing.

If you've been keeping pace with Game of Thrones season 7, you'll know that all of the prominent chess pieces of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire are beginning to cross paths.

It was reported hackers broke into the cable company's servers earlier this week and also made off with unreleased episodes of Ballers, Room 104, and Insecure.

According to Entertainment Weekly, upcoming episodes from a number of the studio's popular shows were stolen.

Game of Thrones season 7 began with a bang and is already halfway through.

So much so that the Season 7 premiere has been documented as the highest-rated episode EVER for an HBO original series. If the attackers don't want money, one could surmise that they're simply out to damage HBO and seemingly increases the likelihood that stolen data will eventually be leaked online. HBO is reportedly working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and cyber-security firm Mandiant to investigate the breach.

Another report, published by the Hollywood Reporter, went into alleged details regarding the sophistication of the attack. The people who claimed responsibility for the leak promised that more content was on the way, though they didn't give an idea of what that content would be.

AT&T also recently agreed to buy Time Warner, which owns HBO, and there's a possibility that a hack of this size could have financial ramifications there, too.

The network did not address any specifics about what type of information was obtained in the hack.
