They did it with the "Orange" series. If I remember correctly it was an audio production facility that was hacked. So it could be a third party.

Just checked the release dates. If it's Pirates of the Caribbean, it's not that "big" a deal. It's coming out in 1 week and they can just avoid them. If it was with a larger release window, they could have worried then.
