Hackers claim to have found a way into Disney's database and stolen a film for ransom, demanding the company to pay up or they will release the movie for free online.
In an ironic twist, the movie in question is reportedly Dead Men Tell No Tales, the latest in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which is due for general release in just 11 days.
According to Deadline, Disney's hackers are demanding “an enormous amount of money,” and are also asking to be paid in hard-to-trace Bitcoin. Disney has announced that it is refusing to pay and that the FBI has been contacted.
This isn't the first time a major company has been hit with a hack of this kind. Earlier this year hackers stole season 5 of Orange Is the New Black, leaking it to torrent sites after Netflix refused to pay the ransom.
Regardless of whether the leak goes ahead or not, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will hit theaters on May 26. Watch the trailer for it below.
