HBO Is Trying To Acquire $250,000 In Bitcoin To Pay Hackers -- BITCOIN!

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in News & Politics Tech


Hackers who stole data from HBO have leaked an email from a company executive showing negotiations over a ransom. I also can't believe bitcoin is still a thing -- didn't it implode a few years ago?

This is a bad idea and will hurt HBO and others in the end.  This will open up more hackers to attempt to extort money by doing this to content providers.

Not that I care, I hate cable.

kalron27 it's a wake up call for all corporations. Or more accurately, a snooze alarm. It's not like others haven't been hacked and humiliated before.

It would be really great if these hacker assholes could be tracked down and jailed.

Point of reference.. If you had spent 100 bucks on bitcoins back in 2010, it would be worth approx 4.3 million bucks today.

Have a nice day.
