Threat by hackers to release one of their latest films was probably a bluff, Bob lger, the Disney CEO has confirmed the same. Earlier this month, reports surfaced that hackers had threatened to release the film online if a demand for ransom was not met as they had stolen Disneys upcoming film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Iger said in an interview with Yahoo Finance that, To our knowledge we were not hacked. We had threat of a hack of a movie being stolen. We determined not to react in the manner in which the person who was threating us had required, however, we decided to take it seriously.

Nothing has happened as we dont believe that it was real, he added. The unrecognized hackers had claimed Disney to pay in the undiscoverable bitcoin crypto-currency to ransom, or else they would release the film in 5 minute bits. Disney refused to pay anything, according to Iger.
