Crunchyroll’s Website Compromised. Attempts to Auto-Download Malware


At around 3:00 am PST, Crunchyroll’s website began having server issues for several users and then around 30 minutes later, Crunchyroll users went to Twitter saying that the website’s homepage attempts to auto-download a “Crunchyroll Viewer” program upon visiting.


Apparently what happened is that their DNS was hijacked. Instead of the users being connected to Crunchyrolls DNS, they were being connected to a host that attempts to download a malicious trojan in the user’s computer.

Crunchyroll officials said that no user data was hacked or compromised.
