The hacker group allegedly uploaded the first episode to an illegal file-sharing service.
It has been reported that the hacker group caught the attention of investigators last year when they advertised hundreds of thousands of alleged records from US healthcare organizations and demanded a ransom.
Disney, owner of ABC Television Group, had recently received a hacking threat, demanding ransom for stolen movie.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation said that is is investigating.
