"This is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the U.S".
Another episode of "Game of Thrones" was released on Tuesday, the second confirmed leak to hit season seven. The people arrested apparently worked for Star India, which is one of HBO's distributors in the country, and it seems that HBO just can't seem to catch a break with these leaks because another episode has since found its way online.
In news unrelated to the biggest hack in HBO history, the company's Spanish and Nordic subsidiaries accidentally made next week's episode available on demand for one hour, giving hackers enough time to download it and leak it online.
HBO, which like CNN is owned by Time Warner, said in late July it was investigating a hack targeting its shows.
"We have learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO España platforms", said Tom Nielsen, a spokesman for HBO Europe.More news: US, Japan vow to boost defence cooperation with India,S Korea, Australia
"HBO Spain leaking next weeks episode of game of thrones was amusing until I saw and spoiler and now want to be burnt by a dragon", wrote another.
Aside from the Game Of Thrones gaffes, US TV network HBO has also been under attack from a group of hackers who said they have stolen 1.5TB of data and have been trickling out the stolen information over several weeks.
Unreleased episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which makes its much-anticipated return in October, and other shows have been dumped online, according to reports.
