După Netflix şi studiourile Disney, la rând a venit HBO (încă o dată după incidental Game of Thrones 2015). Chiar dacă nu a fost confirmat cantitatea de date şi ceea ce anume au sustras hackerii, reprezentanţii HBO au confirmat că au fost victima unui atac cibernetic şi că în momentul de faţă colaborează cu autorităţile americane în investigaţii, precum şi cu o serie de firme externe de securitate cibernetică în vederea soluţionării vulnerabilităţilor din sistem.

În această dimineaţă, Richard Plepler, preşedinte şi CEO HBO a trimis angajaţilor săi următorul e-mail:
Dear Colleagues,

As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming. Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us.

I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests. The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of.

As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully.

Richard
