Hackers leak 10 new Orange Is the New Black episodes after Netflix failed to pay ransom

On Saturday, the hacking group The Dark Overlord followed through with threats to release 10 of 13 new Orange Is the New Black episodes that it had in its possession after Netflix failed to pay a ransom. The Dark Overlord, or TDO, allegedly has tried to extort money from other big networks as well and used the leak to threaten those networks.

TDO tweeted: “Who is next on the list? FOX, IFC, NAT GEO, and ABC. Oh, what fun we’re all going to have. We’re not playing games anymore.”

On Friday, the hacking group released the first statement and uploaded the first episode of Orange Is the New Black Season 5 to The Pirate Bay. Netflix, which was allegedly one of the first to download the episode, said it was “aware of the situation. A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved.” The FBI is one of the agencies investigation, according to the Associated Press.

TDO seemed ticked that Netflix still didn’t pay the undisclosed ransom, so the hacking group released Orange Is the New Black episodes 2 – 10 on Saturday.
