Hackers found a way into Disney’s database and stole a film for ransom, demanding the company to pay up or they will release the movie for free online.
In an ironic twist, the movie is Dead Men Tell No Tales, the latest in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which is due for general release tomorrow.
According to Deadline, Disney’s hackers are demanding “an huge money,” and are also asking to be paid in Bitcoin. Disney has announced that it is refusing to pay and that the FBI has been contacted.
Regardless of whether the leak goes ahead or not, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will hit theaters tomorrow.
