For hackers, the spoils—or shall we say, spoilers—of war can be ruthless.

As RCLife reported recently, HBO has been left reeling from a major hack of its computer systems back in July—including spoilers for juggernaut Game of Thrones and some full, yet-to-be-aired episodes. (Although it was reported that an episode of Thrones was recently leaked, it was apparently not related to the July hack.)

The hackers demanded HBO pay a $6 million ransom. The network refused.

And so the leaks continue. As the Associated Press reported Sunday, the hackers have churned out several episodes of the soon-to-be-resurrected Curb Your Enthusiasm, which isn’t set to premiere until October, in a recent video dump.

Also included in the video dump were unaired episodes of Insecure, Ballers, Barry, a comedy special, and David Simon’s latest stab at post-Wire stardom, The Deuce.

This could only be the tip of the iceberg, as hackers could still have a hold of higher-value episodes or even HBO employees’ personal information.

The FBI is currently investigating the HBO hack.
