HBO confirmed to Vulture that the Game of Thrones episode leak came from Star India and not from its own network. "This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action", a Star India spokesperson said in a statement.

As reported in Entertainment Weekly, an HBO insider says the leak is not part of the major hack of HBO which first broke Monday morning and contained a script from the same episode.

HBO's United Kingdom broadcast partner for Game of Thrones, Sky, also gave away a major spoiler for Sunday's episode in a teaser trailer that aired Wednesday.

The Spoils of War, which will be aired in India on Star World on August 7, will clock 50 minutes.

Though HBO finally stopped giving out screeners to the press for season 7, that doesn't seem to have kept it safe from leaks in this case.

In 2015, four episodes were leaked ahead of the fifth season premiere.

Such malware infects web browsers, then captures usernames and passwords, enabling cybertheft. His friends and associates are concerned as they do not know where he was taken to.

HBO did not respond to a request for comment. Dubbed, boastfully, by the perpetrators as "the greatest leak of cyber space era", hackers reportedly compromised 1.5TB of data from cable channel HBO.

Starting a few hours ago, a copy of the upcoming Game of Thrones episode "The Spoils of War" began to circulate on various file-sharing and streaming sites, including The Pirate Bay.

And in a sign which appears to suggest the leak was from an internal cut, a watermark on the episode reads: "VI FULL FRAME MASTER".

This isn't the first time a Game of Thrones episode got leaked before its broadcast date.

The new 2017 hack, done by an anonymous person using the moniker "Little.Finger66", also included the theft of thousands of internal documents.
