Winter is coming and so is some bad news for HBO.

Since reports that the television network’s servers were hacked on July 31, it’s been revealed that 1.5 terabytes of data including several upcoming episodes of popular television series like Game of Thrones had been obtained by the cyber attackers and the situation has escalated.

On Wednesday morning, Hack Read reported that the hackers who breached HBO’s security had already begun uploading some of the stolen data to a website, including personal employee info, several un-aired episodes of Game of Thrones and Barry, and more.

Though the website is not currently loading, a screengrab from Hack Read shows download links for episodes 3 and 4 of Games of Thrones Season 7 along with a show script, episodes 1 through 3 of Ballers Season 3, episodes 1 and 2 of the HBO series Barry which isn’t set to debut until 2018 episode 2 and 3 of Room 104, and episode 2 of Insecure Season 2. Mashable has not independently verified that these links are real.

Included in the 1.5 terabytes of data acquired is an upcoming episode of Ballers and Room 104 and a script that’s reportedly of the next Game of Thrones episode (Season 7, episode 4.) The items have already been posted online and more footage is promised to be “coming soon.”

The words “To be continued” were included at the bottom of the hacker’s website, which means the company might not be out of the woods just yet.

In a statement provided to Mashable on Tuesday, the network explained the incident is being looked into. “We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold.”

Mashable reached out to HBO for additional comment.
