A malicious hacker has reportedly released 10 episodes of the new series of TV show 'Orange is the New Black'.
Axar.az reports citing to BBC 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 shows were due to be released officially from 9 June onwards.
The hacker who stole the episodes said they had also managed to steal series 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 which is believed to have taken place in late 2016.
