A spokesperson for Star India, one of HBO's global partners, confirmed to Fox News Friday that episode 4 of Season 7, titled "The Spoils of War", has made the rounds online.

It's possible that Star India was somehow part of the larger HBO hack, but it's likely a separate issue.

They also stated that they are going to take this matter seriously and the perpetrators will face legal remedial actions.

Unlike earlier leaks involving a Game of Thrones script and episodes of Ballers and Room 104, this one doesn't appear to be the result of a reportedly massive recent cyberattack on the network.

Game of Thrones is now three episodes into its seventh season.

Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage in Season 7 of "Game of Thrones". The GOT S7E4 Spoils of War has been released by the hackers who had staged a major cyber attack on HBO a few days ago.

This isn't the first time HBO has been subject to a hack - and definitely not the first time "Game of Thrones" was the target.

Variety reported Thursday that the hackers behind the cyberattack are threatening to leak even more sensitive information on Sunday.

The HBO hackers claimed to have obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from the company and promised to leak more in the coming weeks.

At a running time of 50 minutes, the episode clocks as the shortest episode in the HBO drama's history. Article updated following HBO's statement that the two leaks might be different incidents.

HBO has reaped great benefits from the success of its series Game of Thrones, but that success has made it a target.

The reported leak came from one of HBO's global network partners - Star India - which has access to the episodes before they air.
