Recently it was reported that four people had been arrested in India for leaking an episode of HBO's Game of Thrones. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention.

Let's start here: Anyone who even casually watches Game of Thrones knows the agony that is waiting from Sunday to Sunday to find out what happens on the next episode; well, it seems like HBO Spain fixed that problem for us this week by releasing a Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 leak online.

In addition to "Curb", tonight's episode of "Insecure" was also leaked, along with episodes of "Ballers" and new series, "The Deuce" starring James Franco (scheduled to premiere September 10) and "Barry", the Bill Hader comedy set for a January 2018 debut.
