Hey guyz!!

I’m gonna assume many of you already know crunchyroll is infected with a lot of malicious ware.
My anti-virus goes off quite often and tonight Google Chrome threw this at me:




I had emailed the support staff a few days ago and they didn’t feel there was any problems.
Well I emailed them the above screen shot tonight so hopefully they’ll take it more seriously now.


Forget clicking on any of the ads, just coming on to crunchyroll, you are taking a chance of getting a virus!

I enjoy this site very much and hope Shinji & staff will do away with all these 3rd party advertisements (source for all the malicious ware).

I apologize for making any worried but YOU SHOULD BE! Even if you’ve got an anti-virus program, there’s no guarantees.

Sadly, my advice. Stay off this site. Atleast until they do away with the advertisements.

I did a little research and believe the site went through this type of problem before?? (Correct me if I‘m wrong), then they took the ads off and now we’re doing it again???

If you guyz see your anti-virus program catching stuff while your on this site, let Shinji & the staff know!! Send them any screen shots you can capture!!!


I simply want them to get the message!! I hate to see anyone's computer get screwed up!!

peace,
snow_san

Well, I'm on a Mac and I don't get that at all.

Just tried Firefox, Chrome, Safari and got nothing. I think the problem is on your end.

If you think it has to do with the ads, get an adblock. It's that simple.

You do realise that macs hardly have any viruses at all? And that they offer no protection from viruses mainly due to the fact that the chance of getting a virus on a mac is 1 in a 10000000

Try using a windows computer to see how it reacts to the site.

Anyway. My computer has no problem at all with the site. Although I have vista(skynet) and it may be tricking me on purpose.
