Hackers who broke into HBO's cyber security system are not backing down. We've already seen leaked scripts of unaired Game of Thrones episodes and it's said that unaired episodes of some other shows have been leaked as well.

The past few days, the hacker group, whose speaker was referred to as Mr. Smith, released another set of emails that were sent and received by HBO's vice president for film programming, Leslie Cohen. Reports suggest that 1.5TB of data has been stolen from the cable giant's servers.

The Ontario Teachers Pension Plan Board holds 1.77 million shares with $67.48M value, down from 2.03 million last quarter. Majedie Asset Mngmt Ltd holds 0.49% or 95,492 shares in its portfolio. 9,400 are owned by Tower Bridge Advsrs.

Whether or not HBO ever meant to follow through with its $250,000 offer, the email raised questions Friday among security professionals about the importance of the data and whether HBO's reaction might encourage future attacks.

WIRED added that the hackers released a video containing a scrolling message with the famous "Game of Thrones" musical scoring in the background.

"You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison said . Gasps could be heard from the crowd of left-wing activists when Ellison made his remarks.

The message also implores the hacker to extend a ransom-payment deadline for one week while the $250,000 payment is made and the necessary amount of bitcoin can be secured. According to the report, the HBO executive wrote that the company had not been able to acquire the amount of Bitcoin, which is almost $6 million, the hackers had demanded. The hackers implied their 6-month work was worth at least $6 million. The network said: "In the spirit of professional cooperation, we are asking you to extend your deadline for one week". The mail sent to various media houses by the hackers, appeared to be from HBO executive offering the "bug bounty" of $250,000, Forbes reported.

They said the HBO Internal Network, emails, technical platforms, and database were penetrated, with "confidential stuff that blaze your eyes" obtained.
