The hacking entity that leaked a Netflix series online and episodes of Steve Harvey's ABC game show told The Hollywood Reporter studio films are in their possession.

"Hollywood is under attack, and we're at the forefront of this most recent offensive," wrote the pseudonymous hacking collective TheDarkOverlord to the Hollywood Reporter. "We're not in the business to scare anyone. We're in the business of earning vast amounts of internet money."

The hackers uploaded 10 episodes of the popular Netflix series, "Orange Is the New Black" to Pirate Bay on April 28, nearly two months ahead of its air date.

The incident isn't isolated. Another group of cyber hackers in mid-May demanded a ransom from Disney after it claimed to have stolen an upcoming movie. Disney didn't pay up, sources told the Hollywood Reporter.

"Make no mistake, Hollywood is under assault," the hacking collective wrote to the Hollywood Reporter.

TheDarkOverlord also reportedly has episodes of CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles" and Fox's "New Girl."
