On the heels of Netflix’s disappointing Q1 growth outlook, Hackers have managed to grab their hands on a nearly complete version of the latest season of Orange is the New Black from the streaming giant.
It’s unclear what the motives of the hacker, who goes by handle ‘thedarkoverlord,’ or why they are attacking Netflix, but it’s clear they demanded some type of ransom from the network. The hackers warned of other leaks coming just as Orange is the New Black Season 5 climbs to the top of torrent websites. “We’re calling you out: ABC, National Geographic, Fox, IFC, and of course Netflix, still. There’s more Netflix on the feasting menu soon.”
It’s almost a certainty that the hackers might have the complete season of NatGeos new show Genius, and perhaps even the new season of The Simpsons or perhaps other Fox comedies. The hackers have so far leaked the first ten episodes of Orange is the New Black online, but they promise other shows and Netflix stuff soon.
