A hacker has attempted to extort Netflix by leaking the first ten episodes of Orange Is The New Black's fifth season months before it's premiere date.

The episodes have been leaked to The Pirate Bay by the hacker, who calls himself thedarkoverlord.

He then took to Twitter to reveal that he is planning to release more content from larger programming companies such as ABC, FOX and National Geographic.


Engadet have reported that there was a breach at Larson Studios, a third-party studio involved in the show, that resulted in the leak.

Netflix has also released a statement saying the incident is currently under investigation.

"We are aware of the situation.

"A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved."

Orange Is the New Black is one of Netflix's most popular shows and the hacker has posted a press release on Twitter saying he will be posting the remaining episodes.
