We are currently investigating the cause, but it is possible that the viewer may be subjected to malicious tricks, so please refrain from silent access.
'Love live!' Is a media mix project originally started in the magazine 'Dengeki G's magazine' in 2010, and a television animation version was broadcast in 2013. The idol group “ μ's ” that appears in the play has gained great popularity, including being part of the 66th Red-White Song Battle.
The official site looks like this, and in 60 seconds it is redirected to a completely unrelated animation in 60 seconds. As per the written text, when the perpetrator made an application for domain transfer, the official who is the administrator of the domain has approved for some reason and succeeded in hijacking the domain without any trouble. It seems that it has been done.
Since the official site of animation comes to the top even in Google search, it has become an abnormal situation where a message from a perpetrator is displayed at the top of the search results.
As far as the source is seen, the page is written in HTML and is very simple. The music file of MP3 format was played by BGM designation, but it did not flow even if it actually accessed.
