Disney’s latest ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ stolen by hackers now demanding ransom

Disney’s upcoming Johnny Depp film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has been pilfered by ransom hackers seeking payment the the studio. The hackers have demanded that an enormous amount of money be paid to Bitcoin. Disney is currently working with the FBI and will not pay.

The hackers said they would release bits of the film — in increments — if their demands weren’t met.

They’re making another one? Seriously release it, more people would probably watch it then! If you’re going to do it don’t split it up into “increments” though you jerks.

Relevant because the same thing happened to Netflix and their popular series “Orange is the new black”. True to their word the hackers released the episodes in their possession as the ransom went unpaid.
