Disney company asked to pay a big ransom to hackers but will not do it


The cyber-thieves demanded to be paid in online currency Bitcoin and are threatening to release five minutes of the movie, followed by 20-minute segments until the ransom is delivered. Disney did not reveal which film had been stolen but said the company would not be giving in to the blackmail attempt. They are working with federal agents and monitoring for leaks online. This follows the same issue Netflix faced when a ransom hacker spilled out 10 episodes of the next season of Orange Is The New Black when Netflix also refused to ante up. The Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise has pulled in a whopping $3.72 billion in worldwide box office since first launching in 2003.
