Watch out for major Game of Thrones spoilers: HBO has been hit by a massive cyberattack, Entertainment Weekly reports. The upcoming episodes of some of the network's series, plus at least one alleged script or treatment, have already been leaked online by the hackers. HBO confirmed the "compromise of proprietary information," but has not released any specifics about which shows were impacted. The hackers, who say they grabbed 1.5 terabytes of data and have promised more leaks, claim to have Game of Thrones leaks in the works, but it's not yet clear whether that's true. The episodes leaked so far are from Ballers and Room 104. Rolling Stone reports the script for the next episode of Thrones may have also been leaked. HBO says it is working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms to investigate the security breach. (More HBO stories.)
