Acting Manhattan US Attorney Joon Kim called Mesri "an experienced, sophisticated hacker who has been wreaking havoc on computer systems around the world for some time".

Kim said the decision was made to go public after a determination that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was unlikely to be able to lure Mesri to a place where he could be arrested.

The 29-year-old hacker has been charged with wire fraud, computer hacking, threatening to impair the confidentiality of information, aggravated identity theft and transmission of an extortionate communication.

An Iranian man with ties to the country's military taunted HBO employees with the e-mail greeting "Hi All losers!" before announcing he'd stolen scripts to unreleased Game Of Thrones episodes and other sensitive data, U.S. prosecutors said. In case his alleged role with the Iranian government is true, the Iranian authorities won't be comfortable to see him in the U.S.

Back in May, he began reconnaissance work on HBO, looking for restricted parts of the corporate network, before compromising multiple user accounts to obtain unauthorized access to the TV network's servers.

He allegedly downloaded huge amounts of data, including video files of unreleased episodes of Ballers, Barry, Room 104, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Deuce.

"Through the course of the intrusions into HBO's systems, Mr Mesri was responsible for stealing confidential and proprietary data including... scripts and plot summaries for unaired programming, including but not limited to episodes of Game of Thrones", the documents read.

A spokesman for HBO said Tuesday that the company has been "working with law enforcement from the early stages of the cyber incident". Included was an image of "Game of Thrones" Night King character, leader of an army of zombies, with the words, "Good luck HBO". "HBO is hacked! Beware of Heart Attacks!".

On July 30, Mr. Mesri began leaking some stolen materials over the internet, prosecutors said, suggesting that HBO didn't pay the ransom.

Kim also discussed that there may be more charges against Iranian Regime hackers in the near future.
