  • U.S. prosecutors charge Iranian in 'Game of Thrones' hack (TWX, T)

The indictment described Mesri as a "self-professed expert" in hacking who had worked on behalf of Iran's military to attack military systems, nuclear software systems and Israeli infrastructure.

Nevertheless, Trump keeps publicly pressuring the Congress to reintroduce sanctions against Iran and Mesri's case may well be a part of his anti-Tehran campaign. The Washington Post reported that Justice Department prosecutors were being pressed to consider making public any investigations or charges involving Iran or its citizens.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest, and should he get caught, Mesri could face up a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison: "up to five years for each of the four charges related to computer fraud; a two-year mandatory sentence for aggravated identity theft; and up to two years in prison for the extortion charge".

Documents show how Mesri began research into HBO's computer networks and staff in May 2017.

No substantive proof of the link between Iranian officials and Mesri, who has now been added to the FBI's most wanted list, has been offered in the statement.

A spokesman for HBO said Tuesday that the company has been "working with law enforcement from the early stages of the cyber incident".

He is accused of compromising multiple user accounts, and in July of sending an anonymous email to HBO personnel saying: "Hi to All losers!"

We all know about the Game Of Thrones hacker that was a pain in the neck for HBO.

He sent another e-mail: "I have the honor to inform you. that we successfully breached into your huge network" and that "in a complicated cyber operation, infiltration into your network (was) accomplished and we obtained most valuable information". Included was an image of "Game of Thrones" Night King character, leader of an army of zombies, with the words, "Good luck HBO".

Behzad Mesri - also known as "Skote Vahshat" - threatened to release the files unless the network paid a ransom of $6 million, according to Reuters.

Mesri was a "sophisticated" hacker, Kim said, who had carried out attacks on other computer systems across the world.

An indictment unsealed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan accuses Behzad Mesri of hacking into the cable network's computer system in NY.

"Today, winter has come for Behzad Mesri", Kim said.
