A malicious hacker has reportedly released 10 episodes of the new series of TV show 'Orange is the New Black'.
The episodes are believed to have been uploaded to file-sharing sites across the net after US media firm Netflix refused to pay a ransom.
The hacker who stole the episodes said they had also managed to steal series from other broadcasters including ABC, Fox and National Geographic.

Computer security news site Databreaches.net said it had been given evidence by the hacker that they also got away with 37 other shows and films.
Stolen shows include XXX: Return of Xander Cage, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Season 1 of Bill Nye Saves the World


A painful hit for the studios I have no doubt.

in the real world, the typical consumer isnt going to notice or care. They will watch such shows on TV or in the case of movies, the metroplex theaters anyway.
The money will be made no matter if some silly hacker released this as files or not.
Big business Hollywood should just relax, go smoke a J or something.
