Fan of Twilight? Be Very Careful If You’re Looking Online For It

If you like the Twilight series, be careful if you plan to do any “research” on it, or if you plan to visit the site of the series author (Stephenie Meyer). Her site is currently hacked, blacklisted, and redirecting users to the Blackhole Exploit Kit.
