'Game of Thrones' Hit by Yet Another Leak

The GOT S7E4 Spoils of War has been released by the hackers who had staged a major cyber attack on HBO a few days ago.

According to a spokesperson from HBO, the leak was related to one of HBO's distribution partners, Star India, and had no relation to the hack.

The screenshots drew attention towards Star India and the broadcast giant later in the evening released a media statement accepting the compromise. A Star India spokesperson confirmed the episode's authenticity to Entertainment Weekly and also said the company would be starting an investigation into the breach.

There had been speculation that HBO distribution partner Star India had leaked the content, however in a statement from the firm they denied the accusations.

HBO has notoriously kept an extremely tight lock on Game of Thrones.

Season 7 Episode 4 of Game of Thrones will have its legitimate premiere on HBO on Sunday, August 6 at 9 p.m. Eastern. Earlier this week, HBO bosses slammed the latest "unsettling and disturbing" hack after revealing another GoT script was leaked.

HBO's Game of Thrones is no stranger to leaks and piracy.

And now, the fourth episode has reportedly leaked online ahead of its official broadcast on HBO in the U.S. and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom at the end of this week. Last week some of HBO's data, along with the script of some unaired episodes of Game of Thrones, and some other shows were hacked. You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak.

Bad news for Game of Thrones fans (or good news, depending on your sense of morality): Full episodes are officially being leaked, so spoilers are officially coming.
