It’s not certain only what happened or who was responsible. We’ve asked Crunchyroll for sum and will let we know if it has some-more to share. It’s clear that a site was deliberately targeted, though, and a perpetrators held a site off-guard. As Customer Support Lead Nate Ming put it, a penetrate was a “first thing” some on a group woke adult to in a morning. And a timing was really reduction than ideal if we were a spectator — we might have perceived a bold warn if we spend Saturdays throwing adult on Dragon Ball or Attack on Titan.
Update: Crunchyroll’s primogenitor association Ellation has explained what happened. Intruders managed to steal and control a company’s Cloudflare configuration, that routinely redirects trade to Crunchyroll. They directed it to a brute server hosting a malware. Thankfully, it was an “isolated attack” — it targeted Cloudflare, though not a tangible website. If we have a Crunchyroll account, it’s protected and sound.
If we downloaded that executable? You’re not indispensably in trouble. You’re excellent if we didn’t run a antagonistic program. If we did, we can manually mislay a brute files and registry entries. The group hasn’t identified a perpetrator, though it’s still hours after a attack; some-more decisive answers will expected take some time.
