Modern ransom: Why Dark Overlord released Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black

It’s a story of modern ransom.

A man, woman or group thereof called The Dark Overlord has released the new season of Orange Is The New Black one month ahead of its Netflix release.

It did so because Netflix refused to pay a ransom.

The Dark Overlord has since made similar threats to FOX, the American ABC and others.

So the new episodes of the hit US TV show are now circling online via what the ‘Dark Web’, Centre for Internet Safety director Nigel Phair told Ross and John.

‘There will be hundreds of thousands of people searching for it as we talk,’ he said.

If he/she/it does get caught, history says they’ll be made to pay.

In a recent case of online crime, the operator of Silk Road, founder of the world’s largest online drug marketplace, is facing life in prison without parole.
