HBO Offers Hacker Group $250000 'Bounty Payment'

HBO hackers leak emails, demand payment
HBO offered $250,000 as a "bounty payment" to a hacker who stole TV show scripts from the company, according to an email obtained by CNBC, but a source familiar with the situation said it was just a "delay tactic".
The Hollywood Reporter and Varietyboth obtained a copy of a message from HBO on August 10, that was sent to the anonymous hacker back in July. It was reported earlier this week that hackers had posted some stolen HBO files online, demanding a bitcoin ransom to prevent additional releases. I guess putting out scripts for unreleased Game of Thrones episodes is one way to bring these issues to HBO's attention.

"[Network has] been working hard since [July 23] to review all of the material that you have made available to us". In their initial video to HBO, they requested "six months salary", claiming to make $12 million to $15 million per year.
This is the second data dump from the purported hacker.
The dump itself was just 3.4 gigabytes - mostly technical data that appears to provide a topography of HBO's network and to list network-administrator passwords. "As a show of good faith on our side, we are willing to commit to making a bug bounty payment of $250,000 to you as soon as we can establish the necessary account and acquire bitcoin". While HBO may have had no intention of paying, it's unusual to see such a huge corporation engaging with a hacker at all. As there's no statement from the network yet, we have to assume they at least considered this as a possibility, right?
