The Dark Overlord also claimed to have stolen series from other studios and is asking for additional ransoms. For its part, Netflix has said that a production company that deals with several TV projects experienced a security breach.

The culprit claims that they have hacked several small studios and distributors however we believe this is all just words trying to get money. "We were quite offended by our targets' responses (or lack thereof)", it added. The remainder of the stolen episodes was similarly uploaded about 12 hours later and accompanied by a press release attributed to The Dark Overlord.

Netflix past year renewed "OITNB", which execs have said has been consistently its most-watched original series, for seasons 5, 6 and 7. We're calling you out: ABC, National Geographic, Fox, IFC, and of course Netflix, still. "Thedarkoverlord" explained in an online post that they obtained only the first 10 of the 13 episodes of "OITNB" season 5 because the cyberattack was carried out before the final three installments were available.

At the end of season four of Orange Is The New Black, fans were left on the edge of their seats wondering if Daya (Dascha Palanko) would actually fire the gun she pulled on a sadistic prison guard. Back in February, The Dark Overlord told the AP "no one really (cares) about unreleased movies and TV show episodes".
