Re: Why not arrested?
He is in Iran, and an issuing an arrest warrent will just be a waste of time. Iran does not have an extradition treaty with the US. There is nothing that can be done as long as he is in Iran.

Re: Justice?
He hasn't been arrested becasue he is in Iran and they do not extradite to the US, aka the Great Satan. As long as he stays there, he will never face any legal action.

Re: Critical Data?
i REALLY have to agree here ---- any data breach IS serious and if HBO had financial data hacked, well there goes that one.,  THAT is the critical feature  of course --- $ always matter.  So if I appeared to be a bit off the mark here, apologies to one and all.

Re: Critical Data?
"if we are talking scripts and Hollywood content?"

I see, this is quite costly, also reputation, it is similar to Sony hack I would say.

"Yes it is sad to see a hack and there may be some financial data there"

True, this stolen episodes will cost HPO a lot I would say.

" I have real worries but HBO"

That makes sense, at the same time this shows hackers capabilities to cause damage, it may very well be other things next time.

"Forever looking over their should"

I see. They may not even care about it if there is no arrest warranted.

Why not arrested?
 

I am wondering why do not arrest him, they do not have enough evidence maybe?

Critical Data?
If we are talking national security, medical data, credit card info and such --- or WOPR for that sake - then I have real worries but HBO???  Yes it is sad to see a hack and there may be some financial data there but .... if we are talking scripts and Hollywood content?  Really - we have much larger worries in security than HBO.

Justice?
So if this individual has yet to be arrested by US authorities what is their current status? "Forever looking over their should", seems to me to be less of a victory of justice then what the article implies.
