Disney’s new ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ movie is being held to ransom by hackers

The new Pirates Of The Caribbean movie is reportedly being held to ransom by hackers.

Disney’s CEO Bob Iger revealed yesterday (May 15) that one of the company’s upcoming films has been pirated. Hackers are apparently threatening to release the film in increments until Disney hands over a huge sum of money via Bitcoin.

Though Iger did not reveal which Disney film is being held to ransom, Deadline reports that the hacked movie is the latest instalment in the Johnny Depp-led franchise. Titled Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge in the UK and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in the US, it hits cinemas on May 26.
