Hacker threatens to release stolen copies of Netflix series
Апр 29 2017
In the ransom note, The Dark Overlord claimed to have stolen series from other studios, too, by breaking into a single company.
Multiple reports are saying that a hacker has stolen the yet-to-be-released fifth season of its prison comedy-drama "Orange Is The New Black".
Netflix has confirmed that the security of a small production vendor tied to their site was breached, and described the case as an "active situation" that is under FBI investigation. That's because a hacker or group of hackers going by the name 'TheDarkOverlord stole the content from a third party, and they're demanding Netflix pay a ransom in order to keep the rest of the season private.
"It didn't have to be this way, Netflix", the hacker wrote in a message posted on Saturday morning.
Netflix said it is aware of the situation. We're calling you out: ABC, National Geographic, Fox, IFC, and of course Netflix, still.
Netflix's popular show about female criminals is the victim of a cybercriminal who claims to be holding the upcoming season hostage.
Now, obviously the hacker's aims are more about money than offering a thoughtful aesthetic critique of the show, but we thought the end of Season 4 was fantastic.
"We're not quite done yet, though".
When the AP contacted The Dark Overlord in February, the hacker said the purloined video wouldn't be made publicly available after all, making the far-fetched claim that "no one really (cares) about unreleased movies and TV show episodes". It would seem their view on the matter has changed.
According to the Associated Press (via Deadline), the individual using the moniker The Dark Lord claims to have got his hands on the upcoming episodes and has threatened to release them before the official release on 9 June.
