The Crunchyroll website has been redirected by a DNS compromise similar to the one that affected ANN earlier this year. Visiting the Crunchyroll website you will be taken to a fake site offering a new client to download, which is in fact a trojan.

Apparently cleared now --


But you probably want to run

Code: Select all

ipconfig /flushdns
to ensure you pick up the real address.

Looks like there were quite a few takers for the bait.
