Hacker group releases first 10 episodes of new ‘Orange is the New Black’ season online

Myles Aronowitz/Netflix

The latest season of Orange is the New Black (OITNB) is slated for a release this June. But a group of hackers opted to release the first 10 episodes on a torrent site after Netflix failed to give in to the “modest offer” they were offering in exchange of the release of the show’s episodes. The group, which goes by the name thedarkoverlord (TDO), asked Netflix for an “undisclosed sum” and when Netflix seemed to be calling its bluff, TDO released 11.46 gigabytes worth of OITNB online.

And it seems Netflix isn’t the only company it’s threatening to pay up. TDO supposedly got access to the shows from a 2016 cyberattack on Larson Studios, an audio post production facility that takes care of a lot of material from big networks and shows. Larson supposedly agreed to pay the hackers but reneged its offer, which might have been the catalyst for the leak. It seems TDO is thinking of going after some of the other big networks. They even released a statement about more releases coming up. "Other companies in the American entertainment industry shouldn't be surprised if they were too [sic] wake up to a verbose, condescending, and abusive letter in their inbox extending a hand of friendship and (most likely) demanding a modest sum of internet money."

Hackers take personal data in Kickstarter breach

Hackers have recently infiltrated Kickstarter to take personal information from users.  Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler said in a blog post the breach did not give hackers access to credit card information. But it gave them access to usernames, email addresses, phone numbers, mailing addresses, and encrypted passwords. The company urges all users to change their passwords for their accounts and for any other site that uses the same password. The company did not reveal the number of customers affected by the breach.

Modified charger can hack into any iOS device

Give a hacker one of these modified chargers and they can push any software they want into your Apple gadget within a minute of it being plugged in. Georgia Institute of Technology researchers warn that all users are at risk because this device doesn’t need any interaction and can hide the apps it installs from your device’s app list. It isn’t clear yet if it can upload malicious codes since iOS devices, by default, can only run and install properly signed apps.

While it is considered a worrying breakthrough, the charger itself doesn’t look like a regular iPhone or iPad charger. Since it is based on a credit card-sized BeagleBone Linux PC, its circuitry won’t seem to fit into one at the moment. The hack and the charger’s capabilities will be showcased at the Black Hat security conference in July.
