According to Entertainment Weekly, four people in India have been arrested for leaking “The Spoils of War” episode on this season’s Game of Thrones. The fourth episode, which ended up breaking ratings records anyways, has been a part of an ongoing back-and-forth threat between HBO and hackers seeking a large payday. It’s currently thought that the four accused of “criminal breach of trust and computer-related offenses,” were not the only ones out there and that more hackers remain. The case against the four was filed by a Mumbai-based company in charge of storage and processing GoT episodes for an app.

HBO has recently put out a “bug bounty” for the GoT hackers in the hopes of slowing/stopping them. Watch the “Death Is the Enemy” preview before next Sunday.
