Hackers Claim To Have Stolen Disney’s Latest ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ For Ransom
Today, hackers claim to have stolen the latest Disney movie for a ransom. The title of the film was not disclosed yet, nor how much the hackers required to get. Disney studio has two big films slated for this summer, which are "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" which opens Friday, and "Cars 3" set to air June 16. Since the nearest movie to come is the Pirates of the Caribbean, many are suspecting that it is the one that is stolen.
As of now, Walt Disney Company is refusing to give any comments about the matter. However, the news and the accusation was claimed by Bob Iger on Monday. Robert Allen "Bob" Iger is an American citizen who is known as the chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company. Iger served as the president of ABC Television from 1994 to 1995 before finally going to Disney. According to him, hackers warn the company that they will release the initial five minutes of the stolen movie, as well as the 20-minute segment if the California-based company does not pay the fee via bitcoin.
As reported by CNBC, this news follows a statement that hackers stole 10 complete episodes of Netflix's upcoming series, "Orange is the New Black." The people behind this cyber attack uploaded the said episodes after Netflix refused to pay a ransom. A Twitter user with a name of @thedarkoverlord claimed to be behind the Netflix attack. He also boasted that he had more movies and series from other media companies.
Movie piracy and stealing have long been a scourge. Also, ransoms via a certain amount of money appear to be a new twist nowadays. In fact, according to The Hollywood Reporter, rumors circulated on the Internet last week that a workprint of the upcoming movie "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" had been pirated and was held for ransom. However, few days have passed, online gossip tipped that rumor is just a hoax. Again, no comments or any announcement are made from the Walt Disney.
