Orange is the New Black hackers claim to have stolen over 30 other shows

The group of hackers who released episodes from the Netflix hit claim to have stolen 36 other shows.

The group, which goes by the name TheDarkOverlord, leaked episodes from the upcoming season of Orange is the New Black and now say they have more to share.

A cyber-security blog is said to have been provided with proof that the group have stolen over three dozen other shows from Larson Studios in Hollywood.

With upcoming episodes of ABC’s The Catch, FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, CBS’s NCIS: Los Angeles, and Fox’s New Girl all said to be in their possession, the group is now threatening to release the titles if a ransom is not paid.

They also claim to have singular titles such as Vin Diesel’s XXX: Return of Xander Cage and Netflix’s Bill Nye Saves the World.

TheDarkOverlord is demanding companies pay a ransom to prevent them from leaking the episodes like they did with OITNB.

The group criticised Netflix for not meeting their demands on Twitter this weekend, saying:

“It didn’t have to be this way, Netflix. 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.”
