HBO Hacker Gets Serious, Leaks ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

It’s no secret that hackers are among the most soulless of human beings. Sometimes it can seem like there’s nothing they won’t do: they leak your nude photos, make public the details of your Ashley Madison profile, and steal many millions of dollars from innocent people every year.

But releasing new episodes of the highly anticipated ninth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is truly a new low for these bottom-dwellers.

This is the latest news in the HBO hacking catastrophe that has plagued the network since July. It appears that the hacker is slowly releasing episodes of not yet premiered HBO shows until HBO ponies up the requisite amount of cash demanded.

The network responded to the collective gasp from both Jews and non-Jews alike when the “Curb” debacle was made public:

If what the hacker wants is attention, disrespecting the sacred ninth season of Larry David’s masterpiece is certainly an effective way of going about getting it. Still, the network has not yet given in to the hacker’s ransom demands.
