Disney chief shrugs off hack threat
CEO Bob Iger DISNEY’S CEO has denied claims that hackers had some of their upcoming films as “empty threats”.
Bob Iger said reports their unreleased movies had been pirated were completely false.
It’s believed hackers were boasting to have obtained the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Mr Iger told Yahoo: “We had a threat of a hack of a movie being stolen.
“We decided to take it seriously, but not react in the manner in which the person who was threatening us had required.”
Iger added that the studio does not “believe that it was real” and “nothing has happened” regarding the threats the hacking group made.
