Cyber News, In Buzz
HBO renewed their popular TV show last week for Season 7 and we aren’t much surprised to see the pirate world’s quickness in trying to grab a free copy of their favorite TV show. The first episode of the Game of Thrones Season 7 was uploaded to various platforms on the web on Sunday, the same day the episode was premiered. And the pirates across the globe spent no time in downloading the episode. But HBO isn’t blind; it can very well see all of the illegal stuff going right under its nose.

Benitez has created a website named Spoil Your Enemies and it does what is says; it destroys the life of your enemies and even friends by sending them TV show spoilers. What’s more is the information is sent via SMS, so, if the other person is isolated from the internet to protect himself, he/she still not safe. Also, the sender being anonymous makes the target totally unsuspecting of what’s coming.
