Hackers continue to pester HBO but have not released any material related to the network’s hit show Game of Thrones in their latest leak.

The hackers broke into the cable channel’s computer network and have been doling out stolen information for the past several weeks.

They have released more unaired episodes, including several of the eagerly awaited return of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which makes its debut in October.

The latest dump also includes Sunday night’s episode of Insecure and what appear to be episodes of other lower-profile shows, including Ballers, the unaired shows Barry and The Deuce, a comedy special and other programming.

The network acknowledged the hack in late July and the thieves are demanding a multimillion-dollar ransom.

They have leaked Game of Thrones scripts, sensitive internal documents such as job offer letters and a month’s worth of emails from a programming executive.

But the intrusion has so far fallen well short of the chaos inflicted on Sony when the studio was hacked in 2014.

In an emailed statement on Sunday, HBO said it was “not going to participate” in what it described as attempts to generate attention by dropping “bits and pieces of stolen information”.

The company said it was not communicating with the hackers.
It has said previously it does not believe its email system as a whole was breached.
