Hackers stole a copy of ‘Orange is the New Black’ season five (updated)

The next season of Orange is the New Black isn’t supposed to premiere until June 9th, but the first episode has already leaked. That’s because a hacker or group of hackers going by the name ‘TheDarkOverlord stole the content from a third party, and they’re demanding Netflix pay a ransom in order to keep the rest of the season private. Late Friday night, TheDarkOverlord tweeted about content belonging to ABC, FOX, IFC and National Geographic, saying “We’re not playing any games anymore.”

According to TorrentFreak, the source of the breach was Larson Studios, an audio production company in Hollywood that does ADR (Automatic Dialog Replacement) work. The hackers claim Larson agreed to pay up but didn’t, and now they’re trying to squeeze Netflix. In a statement, Netflix has said “We are aware of the situation. A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved.”

Update: “TheDarkOverlord” announced that they have released episodes 2-10 of the 13 episode season in another torrent. They also continued to threaten Netflix and the other studios, saying “You’re going to lose a lot more money in all of this than what our modest offer was. We’re quite ashamed to breathe the same air as you. We figured a pragmatic business such as yourselves would see and understand the benefits of cooperating with a reasonable and merciful entity like ourselves. And to the others: there’s still time to save yourselves. Our offer(s) are still on the table – for now.”

If you've ever watched a YouTube video and wished that you could be part of it, there's a new augmented reality app that might be able to help.

It's called Spilly, and it takes popular videos of celebrities, YouTube stars, and other famous clips, then allows users to mash them up with Snapchat-like AR effects and even their own faces.

The app features a seemingly endless feed of video clips sourced from YouTube. For each clip, there's a carousel of special effects you can add to make the video your own.

You could change what Golden State Warriors Star Kevin Durant is wearing, for example, or shower a Miley Cyrus video with virtual confetti or flowers. Or make it rain, or add a spotlight, or any combination of the above. The clips loop so you can keep adding or subtracting effects until you get something you like. Read more...
