An individual using the name 'Mr Smith' has posted online a fresh cache of stolen HBO files, including some related to the show Game of Thrones, as part of what the purported hacker claims is a much larger trove of stolen HBO material.

The dump includes scripts from five Game of Thrones episodes, including one coming episode, and a month's worth of email from the account of an HBO programming executive.

Multiple internal documents related to Game of Thrones, including internal marketing material, were also leaked.

HBO, which previously acknowledged the theft of 'proprietary information', says it continues to investigate and is working with police and cybersecurity experts.

This is the second data dump from the purported hacker.

Entertainment Weekly reported last week that hacker stole 1.5 terabytes of data and posted online un-broadcast episodes of Ballers and Room 104, along with 'a script or treatment' for this week's episode of Game of Thrones.

The HBO leaks have been limited so far compared with the chaos inflicted on Sony in 2014 when hackers unearthed reams of embarrassing emails.
