Disney held to ransom by hackers

 

Must have bought some Mickey Mouse software

Following the news that Disney are being held to ransom by hackers who claim they will release Pirates of the Carribean, Mark James, security specialist at ESET explains:

“Anything that has a value will always be a potential victim of theft, either digital or physical. If someone has it and someone wants it then in theory there’s a market for it. The latest film to hit the headlines is the new Disney film “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, hackers are seeking payment to stop them releasing the film before its official UK release date of May 26.

“Disney has refused to pay the ransom and rightly so. If you’re going to download the film from an unofficial or dodgy source anyway then a month before or a month after is not going to make much of a difference. The film industry has been plagued with piracy issues as early as the 1960’s and this isn’t going to change anytime soon. Paying the ransom or indeed any ransom is generally frowned upon for many reasons. Funding other criminal activity, rewarding the bad guys or funding future attacks are all good reasons to not pay as chances are it’s going to get released anyway.”
