HBO Investigating Hack of Its Twitter Accounts

HBO said Wednesday night that it was investigating the hacking of several of the cable channel’s Twitter accounts, which came as the company is trying to figure out how episodes of its megahit series “Game of Thrones” and other materials were leaked online.

The accounts of several HBO series, including “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” “True Blood,” “Veep” and “Vinyl,” tweeted a message Wednesday night purporting to be from the notorious OurMine hackers. It appeared that only U.S.-based accounts were affected — @HBOUK and @HBOCanada appeared to emerge unscathed, for example.

HBO regained control of the accounts within about 40 minutes and deleted the tweets, which NBC News archived before they were taken down:
