Hackers already released unaired HBO episodes and stole thousands of internal documents from the network, Variety reports. Now, they are reportedly threatening to release additional compromising data over time — with the next dump happening on Sunday.

The group reiterated in an email sent to Variety that they stole the 1.5 terabytes of data and would continue carrying out their cyber crime. It’s unclear at this time how much information or unaired episodes they have stolen from the network’s megabit “Game of Thrones.” The show, which is currently in its seventh and final season, still has four episodes until it ends.
