Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A hacker or hacking group has released several unaired episodes of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm alongside episodes from upcoming series' The Deuce and Barry.

Other series' affected in the leak included Insecure and Ballers. HBO first had episodes of Game of Thrones released early online in July after hackers claimed to have acquired up to 1.5TB of data in hopes of extorting the network, The Guardian reported.

"We are not in communication with the hacker and we're not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released," HBO said in a statement. "It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That's a game we're not going to participate in."

"Obviously, no company wants their proprietary information stolen and released on the internet. Transparency with our employees, partners, and the creative talent that works with us has been our focus throughout this incident and will remain our focus as we move forward. This incident has not deterred us from ensuring HBO continues to do what we do best," they continued.

In May, streaming service Netflix was also attacked by hackers who leaked online new episodes of Orange is the Black.
