Here is a disclosure of what went down with that Orange Is The New Black leak. Larson Studios ended up paying $50,000 in Bitcoin so the hacking group responsible, the Dark Overlord, wouldn’t ruin their reputation, but the episodes went out anyway, and it could have all been avoided if it weren’t for an "old" computer running Windows 7. How has a studio that has been in business since 2002 not learned to patch their systems yet? Or, better yet, why didn’t the hackers leak a show that was actually good? ...the Larson Studios principals are breaking their silence on an incident that threatened the existence of their family-owned audio post-production business. An incident that led them to quietly wire more than $50,000 in extortion money to a group of hackers, only to see some of the most valuable works of their clients, including 10 unreleased episodes of Netflix drama series “Orange Is the New Black,” leak online. Both Larsons got another message from the same number on Christmas Eve. They still weren’t too concerned — but quickly changed their minds when the email arrived a day later. A hacking group calling itself the Dark Overlord told them it had broken into Larson’s server, and was threatening to leak all of the company’s data.
