Besides the alleged "Game of Thrones" script, un-aired episodes of shows "Ballers" and "Room 104" appeared online after the hack. However, this Game of Thrones episode leak is different because it's actually not related to the hack HBO reported recently.
Episode 4 of season 7 appears to have leaked online a couple of days before it goes live on TV and streaming services like Hotstar.
Star India released the following statement: "We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner's end to swiftly determine the cause".
Obviously, the full-length episode has "For Internal Viewing Only" splashed across the screen in the form of an internal HBO watermark, which suggests this footage may have been lifted from an HBO hack that took place earlier this week.

Also made available by the hackers were two episodes of upcoming HBO comedy show "Barry" and one of the "Insecure" show.
Game of Thrones' seventh season recently got underway, with the third episode airing last Sunday in the U.S., and Monday in the UK.
Earlier this week, it was reported that hackers had stolen 1.5 terrabytes of data from television network HBO's servers.
HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler this week sent an email to employees, alerting them about the breach. The hack, which is believed to have involved a staggering 1.5 terabytes of data, seven times the size of the Sony hack, targeted specific content and data housed in different locations.
The Entertainment industry has always been a victim of illegal hacking and piracy, and the makers of Game Of Thrones have become victims of this threat for the second time.
"Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us." continued Piepler.
