Upcoming “Game of Thrones” episode 5, The Door, has been leaked on torrent trackers more than a day before its premiere on HBO.
But the source of the leak wasn’t a renegade employee—it was an error by HBO itself. The episode became available on HBO Nordic, available in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
A torrent is an information package that allows access to large files, and they are often used to pirate large files such as movies or software.
