If you're scrupulously avoiding spoilers, you'll be pleased to hear that HBO are working tirelessly to scrub the internet of stolen data after their files including Game of Thrones plot spoilers were leaked.

To show they mean business, the television network have called in the FBI to investigate the data breach in which hackers claim to have lifted 1.5 terabytes of data after breaking into HBO's computer network.

An unaired episode surfaced online last week as well as personal information of an HBO executive. Though the episode was later confirmed to be a separate leak from network distribution partner Star India, hackers have released other material.

The Independent reports that, "Leaked stolen information also provided a link to the script for the fourth Game of Thrones episode along with unaired episodes of Ballers and Room 104, with the hackers promising that there was much more to come."

In a legal notice sent to Google, HBO have demanded all search results for leaked files are removed and a statement from company CEO Richard Plepler read,"The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of."

Given how desperate people are to work out what will unfold in the Seven Kingdoms, they'd be better off calling in the dragons rather than the FBI who are already tied up with a different mad king.
