How big a threat is this? 
The Sulu Sea between eastern Malaysia and the Philippines has become dangerous for merchant shipping due to rising threat of kidnappings.

The Sulu archipelago is a stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf, an al-Qaeda linked group notorious for kidnappings and, increasingly, piracy.

International Maritime Bureau said global sea kidnappings rose three-fold in 2016, even as global piracy hit its lowest level in nearly 20 years.

Pirates kidnapped 62 people for ransom in 15 separate incidents in 2016.

Piracy in the Sulu Sea - The “new Somalia” or a limited threat?
The National Counter terrorism Centre describes the Abu Sayyaf Group (“ASG”) as “the most violent of the Islamic separatist groups operating in the Southern Philippines and it has as one of its aims the promotion of an independent Islamic State in western Mindanao.
This group has kidnapped a number of mainly Malaysian and Indonesian seafarers over the past year mainly from tugs and fishing boats.
