Being a listed company after all. They did even ended up paying millions of euros and the local Finnish police manage to fail to investigate who was behind it.

The blackmailer had gotten hold of the Symbian encryption key used for signing. The code is a few kilobytes in size. Had the key been leaked Nokia would not have been able to ensure that the phones accept only applications approved by the company.
