Report: Hackers declare war on Hollywood with new threats

The Dark Overlord, a group of hackers behind the premature release of Walt Disney Co.'s ABC (US) show "Steve Harvey's Funderdome" and episodes from the fifth season of Netflix Inc.'s "Orange Is the New Black," told The Hollywood Reporter that it has unaired studio movies in addition to series and films from networks such as IFC (US) and National Geographic Channel (US).

The group claims that it is only interested in "earning vast amounts of internet money," according to a June 6 report, and that is why Hollywood is "under attack."

A report in May indicated that hackers were holding Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" for ransom. Disney CEO and Chairman Bob Iger, however, denied the reports, saying that the company was just threatened with an attack.
