- In India, four people were arrested because they launched a game of Game of Thrones online this month before it was broadcast.

There would be no connection with a large theft of data from HBO. Hackers steel around the same time about 1.5 terabytes of data, including unpublished episodes of Ballers, Room 104 and the new Barry series. They claimed millions of ransom.
