A hacker who claims to have stolen the upcoming fifth season of the prison-set Netflix drama Orange Is the New Black is demanding that the streaming service pay a ransom or else they will prematurely release all the episodes online.
Orange is the New Black season 05 is leaked by TheDarkOverlord. TheDarkOverlord is a hacker group whearlier demanded ransom from Netflix by threatening to leak the content online.
Netflix is an American entertainment company founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph on August 29, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California. It specialises in and provides streaming media and video-on-demand online and DVD by mail.
Orange is the New Black is doing well for Netflix with its brilliant plot and cast. The show is debuting its 5th season on June 9 and can be one of the star performers for Netflix this year.
Though Netflix claims that the online leak is not going to affect the viewership, it is hard to believe because of the huge fan following of the show. It is hard for the fans to wait till June for the season's premiere.
TheDarkOverlord has just leaked only 10 episodes of the 13 episodes in the season. So the fans will have to wait for the season's finale anyway.
The 10-episode leak was uploaded on Pastebin. Though the episodes have been withdrawn from Pastebin, many of the torrent websites are now seen featuring the season 5.
TheDarkOverlord has also threatened ABC, Fox, National Geographic to leak their video content on online platforms. So, the TV show freaks can see the season leaking from these franchises.
