Netflix was in the news lately. It’s the 5th season of flagship series Orange is the New Black was leaked by a hacker group calling itself The Dark Overlord. Netflix had refused to pay a ransom to the organization, spurring TDO to release 10 of Netflix’s 13 episode order on Pirate Bay.
DataBreaches.net was the first to report the breach and was able to determine that its victim was Larson Studios, an audio post-production firm that Netflix uses. Larson was not immediately available for comment. Larson’s website plugs the show at the very top of its web page, though Netflix might certainly be shopping around for a new post-production firm after the breach.
According to the streaming giant’s website, Orange Is the New Black was originally scheduled to debut it’s 5th season on June 9, running for the requisite 13 episodes. TDO made the claim that only the first 10 episodes were available at the time the time of hacking. A spokesperson from Netflix gave the following statement: “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.” Larson, of course, has yet to reply to multiple requests for comment.
