  • Game of Thrones Preview Will All Starks Reunite in Winterfell

Friday morning, several media outlets reported that Game of Thrones season 7 episode 4 has now been leaked online.

The upcoming episode - set to air August 6 in the USA, and August 7 in India - contains two watermarks: a "Star India" one in the bottom-right corner, and a "for internal viewing only" one in the top-left corner. "This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action", a Star India spokesperson said in a statement.

This isn't the first time HBO has faced episode leaks for Game of Thrones.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly joining the investigation into a hack that resulted in unreleased episodes, photos and scripts of popular HBO shows being leaked online, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

And now, the fourth episode has reportedly leaked online ahead of its official broadcast on HBO in the United States and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom at the end of this week.

And then there was the HBO subsidiary that prematurely released an episode during season 6. Would you welcome more Game of Thrones leaks, or do you prefer enjoying the show on its official air date?

More GoT may get out, but it also seems possible at this point that the hackers don't have access to full episodes.

Meanwhile, files containing log-in details for some HBO staff are also believed to have been made available online.

According to the BBC, the leaked Game of Thrones content includes "scripts and summaries" for episodes three and four of the ongoing seventh season.

Before the episode was published online, an automated email from the hacking group to Variety insisted that new data would be released gradually each week.

On Monday, when news of the data breach began circulating, HBO already confirmed that it had been hit by a "cyber-incident" that had led to the loss of some data.

The fourth episode airs first on HBO US this Sunday.

On Wednesday, HBO president and CEO Richard Plepler told employees of the network that the hackers likely didn't break into its email system.
