[u]Warning Regarding Online Scanlation Services
According to Symantec
, an American computer security company, anime and manga could potentially prove to be a vector for malware delivery. It appears that cyber criminals are taking advantage of the huge number of illegal sources of anime and manga and using this as a tool to infect unsuspecting users. Symantec found that multiple scanlation sites hosted malicious re-directions. This included malicious advertisements and in some cases, malicious code. Most malicious incidents also reportedly involved manga popular with fans from the United States (which boasts the highest readership of scanlations).
It was also revealed that the trend did not stop here. Malicious software was found to be involved when scanlations were viewed through a mobile device, giving miscreants access to the user's mobile phone data.
These results were obtained through a study conducted between July 2013 and January 2014.
