Hacking is a common problem as technology advances, although it just seems bizarre to blackmail Netflix.
The Dark Overlord has gotten his/their hands on the upcoming season of Orange is the New Black and had been threatening Netflix to pay up OR they would release the season. They have done just that through downloading sites.
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 any games anymore.— thedarkoverlord (@tdohack3r) April 29, 2017
It's nearly time to play another round.— thedarkoverlord (@tdohack3r) May 1, 2017
Netflix did not give in to the threats and rightfully so.
Orange is the New Black will be released on Netflix as scheduled next month. If you are a die hard fan hoping to get a first look at the show – definitely be weary of these download links! Downloading the show will open a door to your computer that can result in viruses OR even a hacking.
Apparently the hackers are not done yet, and are targeting various shows.
