Photo Story: Hackers Threaten to Post Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Online Unless Disney Pays Ransom

Hackers claim to have plundered Walt Disney’s upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean film and are threatening to release it unless the studio pays a ransom, it was reported on Monday.
Hollywood Reporter says CEO Bob Iger has told employees that film would be released in segments online unless hackers were paid in bitcoin.

He did not name the film, but said Disney had refused to pay and was working with federal investigators.

Deadline.com said the film was Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the latest instalment of the franchise starring Johnny Depp. It is due to reach theatres on 25 May.
