A hacker has leaked 10 episodes from the new series of Netflix TV show Orange is the New Black.
The episodes are reported to have been uploaded to file-sharing sites across the internet after US media firm Netflix refused to pay a ransom. The episodes, from the 5th season of the the popular show, were scheduled to be officially released on June 9th.
The hacker who stole the episodes said they had also stolen content from other broadcasters including ABC, Fox and National Geographic.
Netflix told Entertainment Weekly that it was “aware of the situation” and added: “A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved.”
The FBI is also believed to be looking into the theft.
