'Orange Is the New Black' hacker apparently has 36 more shows he's asking a ransom for

Late last week, it emerged that a hacker by the name 'The Dark Overlord' had obtained a series of episodes from Netflix's upcoming fifth season of Orange Is the New Black. Since his demands for a ransom were not met, the episodes were released for everyone who wanted to download them. This same hacker was said to be in possession of other TV series as well, the number of which has now been revealed.

According to DataBreaches.net, beyond Orange Is the New Black, The Dark Overload has provided the publication with a preview of some of the unreleased material from 36 other movies and TV shows that the hacker has gotten his hands on. These include TV shows like Bill Nye Saves The World, Celebrity Apprentice, NCIS: Los Angeles, Portlandia, Story of God with Morgan Freeman, as well as upcoming 2017 movies like Win It All and XXX: Return of Xander Cage, and the YouTube Red show Liza Koshy Special, to name a few.

All of these titles were apparently obtained from Larson Studios back in December, after the production vendor had a security breach, according to a statement provided by Netflix to DataBreaches. The Dark Overload (TDO) initially intended to release all of the content in his possession on New Year's Eve, but then abandoned that initiative, only to try again months later. TDO has even recently hinted at his next "victims":

The hacker seems intent on leaking another round of the video material he has reasonably soon, as a rather cryptic tweet reveals:

With Netflix asking the FBI for assistance on this matter, it'll be interesting to see if The Dark Overlord does go through with his latest threat.
