A hacker claims to have stolen the upcoming season of Netflix's hit series "Orange Is The New Black," and is demanding that the video streaming service pay an unspecified amount to prevent all the new episodes from being leaked online.
"The Dark Overlord" (the hacker) has already purportedly uploaded the first episode to a file-sharing service.
New episodes of "Orange" are scheduled for official release on June 9.
Netflix said that a small production vendor that works with several major TV studios had suffered a breach. The company added that the FBI has been involved into the investigations.
The Dark Overlord claimed to have stolen series from other studios, too. The purported hacker promised to also release those titles unless "modest" ransoms are paid.
