Do Not Access Crunchyroll’s Website; It’s Been Compromised

Do not access Crunchyroll’s website at this time. Crunchyroll’s German Twitter account has reported that the site is currently suffering from a DNS hijacking.

Going to the page will automatically download an .exe file onto your computer. If the file has already been downloaded, you should be able to simply delete it, but make sure to not open or run the file! There have been reports that it is a type of malware that will encrypt your hard drive.

Stay updated through and @Crunchyroll to find out when the site is safe to access again.

UPDATE: Crunchyroll’s site is fixed! You can visit worry free now.

    I feel like at the very least the title of this post should be changed to reflect that it’s no longer going on, if not replace it with a new post or just delete it all together.

    That’s terrible. People got Crunchyroll’d.
