Was it a Pakistani Who Leaked Unaired Games of Thrones Episode to the Web

A reddit user, allegedly a Pakistani individual, has reportedly leaked this week’s “Games of Thrones” online, leaving the entire web to download the episode well ahead of its scheduled airtime on HBO.

According to details the gentleman leaked “Games of Thrones” episode 4 three days ahead of its airing, causing millions of loss in advertising and triggering spoilers war that has engulfed the internet already.

“Gift from Pakistan”, said the “zmax87“, alleged Pakistani hacker behind the leak, while posting the link of full episode of “Games of Thrones” on reddit.

Other media outlets are reporting that the leaked episode was due to Star India, the distribution partner of HBO in India.

However, the video made available online came from the reddit user who said it as a “Gift from Pakistan”.

The Google Drive link — that contained the leaked episode — is now offline. Google initially said that it was taken offline due to humongous number of downloads but later mentioned it as a “policy violation of Google Driver’s TOS”.

Leaked episode has been replicated on multiple video sharing website since then.

Not to mention HBO servers were hacked last week, however, the media firm has said that latest leak is not related to its last week hack. It said that investigations are underway to find out the the exact track of leaked episode.

This is not the first time that HBO’s top selling shows have been leaked online on the internet.

  • It It not good show anyway overrated. Arrow and the flash are much better compared to game of thrones.

  • ProPakistan, please grow up a bit, this is yet another scam like IRS scams from India, the Indians used to call innocent people in states and threat to put them behind bars or pay the hefty sums, when FBI started probing the scam and Indian call center industry was about to doom, the scammers from India started calling sheriffs and police stations or even the individuals and abuse them for money, when they were humiliated for poor accent the Indians then reveal their identity by telling over the phone, ” I am calling you from Pakistan, I can blow you again the way we did in 9-11 blah blah ” you can find all these calls on youtube, the purpose of telling you all this is an old dirty Indian trick to propagate against Pakistan, after all GOT is trending number 1 in the world, how can Indians hide their poor security when the distribution rights are with STAR INDIA, a stupid person from Pakistan will announce this on internet and gift an illegal venture to world.. wawoo let me just digest this..

  • Stop decepting people! It has been officially leaked by Star India Pvt Limited and HBO even has confirmed about the leak!

    • the hacker hacked star india and leaked the episode. The hacker claims to be pakistani. StarIndia distributes HBO shows in India

  • If he was really a hacker as you suggested, he would not have been so dumb to malign his country. Maybe done by Indians or he was just script skiddy who got success with some script. But hacker would’nt boast “like gift from pakistani”.

    • hackers don’t consider this insult. They are proud of it and they wear their identity as a badge. He would never think he maligned his country but made it proud.

  • hahah the same thing happen with batman vs superman when it leaked out before its release date from censor board.
