Three OvalsHahahahaha!  Karma for replacing your IT staff with H1-B visa folks from India at lower costs?  The only thing that would make this better is if the WannaCry hackers say that they will give some of this ransom money to those who Bob Igor laid off workers to save money:

Send Bitcoin Or The Mouse Gets It: Disney Is Latest Victim Of Ransomware Attack

Great line, by the way.  Rest of it?  Emphasis mine:

Disney is apparently the victim of the latest round of ransomware attacks that have affected hospitals and businesses worldwide. CEO Bob Iger told a company town hall today that hackers have taken possession of a new Disney movie and are threatening to release it in pieces if their ransom demand isn’t met. Axios is reporting that the hacked movie is “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” which is slated to be released this Friday.

The Disney chief said the hackers demanded that a huge sum be paid in Bitcoin. They said they would release five minutes of the film at first, and then in 20-minute chunks until their financial demands are met.  Iger told employees that Disney has called in the feds and would not be giving in to the ransom demand.

Nice film ya got there – be a shame if something were to happen to it.  Or in the case of a film, if this is to be via digital distribution, is that NOTHING will happen, at least by Disney.

Now, if you had experienced IT folks in charge of your network for whom Mickey meant something….
