Can someone call Olivia Pope?
The future of holding hostages for ransom just went digital.
An anonymous hacker carried through on the threat to leak stolen Orange Is the New Black season 5 episode.
The hacker, using username “thedarkoverlord,” threatened to release the season unless ransom is paid.
The early release could cost Netflix millions of new subscribers from April through June considering the release of OINTB is June 9.
“It didn’t have to be this way, Netflix,” the hacker wrote in a message posted on Saturday morning. “You’re going to lose a lot more money in all of this than what our modest offer was. We’re quite ashamed to breathe the same air as you. We figured a pragmatic business such as yourselves would see and understand the benefits of cooperating with a reasonable and merciful entity like ourselves.”
The hackers threatened other Networks, leaving the ominous warning: “And to the others: there’s still time to save yourselves. Our offer(s) are still on the table — for now.”
You can now watch the new OITNB season on The Pirate Bay website.
