 According to the Telegraph, the criminals are demanding for a ransom to avert them from releasing a copy of the movie on torrents sites. So far Disney has refused to pay the hackers who are demanding the ransom be paid in BitCoins, instead Disney are working with the FBI to bring down the hackers.

Hacking has taken a new turn even in the world of piracy. Back then pirate groups who involved in such activities always competed among themselves to be the first to release a decent quality rip of a movie. But now, those groups are no longer interested in the glory. They are out to monetize anything that comes their way.
