The hack only affects subtitle files from third-party sites - watching a legitimate copy with its own subtitles should be fine.

So hackers are preying on people watching illegally pirated videos.

This reminds me of the plot from Blade II. Who do I root for? The regular vampires, or the super-duper mutant vampires?
