A leaked email has revealed that HBO has offered to pay a $250,000 ransom fee to the hackers responsible for a massive data breach recently carried out against the cable giant.

Initially reported last week, the attack against HBO was reportedly massive, potentially compromising thousands of documents. Not only did the hackers obtain unreleased episodes of series like Ballers, Room 104, and Insecure, they obtained script materials for upcoming episodes of Game of Thrones, as well as the personal information of HBO employees. It’s unclear just how massive the breach was, and the hackers have threatened to release more of the information in the near future.
