Got bored. If you've rebooted, you're fucked anyway(?).

PS: Get HSTS, thanks.

What CR ransomware? Haven't heard of this. (I've heard of ransomware, just not this particular one. Or are you saying ransomware that was infecting Crunchyroll? In which case, I haven't heard of it.)

Website was redirected to a fake copy with a link to a .exe file. Anyone who: downloaded that file, installed it and rebooted are now completely screwed.

A few hours ago https://www.reddit.com/r/anime/comments/7aq2s7/psa_dont_enter_crunchyrollcom_at_the_moment_it/

Crunchyroll is safe right now, but if you DLed a file and ran the .exe, congrats you have ransomware on your computer.

How did this happen? Does this happen often?

Crunchyroll's cloudflare was hacked and redirected, and a lack of HSTS meant that browsers couldn't tell the difference.

This is the first time I've seen it on any legit site I frequent. I'm sure it happens though. Just goes to show that you can't be too careful these days. I'm surprised (but maybe I shouldn't be) that Crunchyroll has kept this so quiet. Nothing on the front page, no emails sent out... Unless you were paying attention the day it happened you would never know anything was up.
