[Fixed] Crunchyroll address redirects to Ransomware

[11/04, 3:15PM GMT+0] It has been confirmed by CR staff on twitter 4 hours ago that access to their website has been compromised. Anyone visiting CR will reach a fake webpage that will automatically download a ransomware.
Do not launch that executable under any circumstance: it will encrypt your data, forcing you to pay if you want to recover it.

CR staff confirmed the website itself wasn't hacked, therefore your personal information and payment information are safe. The DNS has been hijacked which is why you are redirected to a fake webpage, but CR actual servers aren't affected.
Note that they are working on their app as well, hence why it isn't working.

For now, do NOT visit their website until the issue has been resolved. If you still did, be sure not to run the malware, which should be named "CrunchyViewer.exe".

[11/04, 4:30 PM GMT+0] Issue solved. CR website is back online.
