    HBO has confirmed that it had suffered a "cyber incident" that had seen material stolen.

    "After Sony's hack in 2014, the HBO hack is a reminder of the new world that we live in. 1.5 Terabytes is a lot of data to lose"," said Ankush Johar, Director, BugsBounty.com.

    "The question is not IF you will be hacked, it's WHEN you will be hacked. And when you do, have you put the right alarm bells in place to mitigate your risk and minimise the damage?" Johar said in a statement.
