domaingateway.com - DNS Hijack?

Postby parityboy » Tue Mar 17, 2015 12:24 am

OK, so I wasn't sure where to put this - if someone can think of a better location, feel free to move it.

Background
I use an AceStream link site - livefootballol.com.

Problem
What I've noticed is that if I mistype the URI - i.e. footballlol.com (too many l's, and the "live" omitted) - I get this URI in the browser:

http://11165504-301870.domain.domaingat ... =null&id=1

What I'm expecting is the browser saying to me "Server not found." So what is going on? Is this browser hijacking (doubt it since I'm running Mint and I don't have any weird add-ons)? Is it a DNS hijack further up the recursion path?

Aparently the domain name http://footballlol.com/ resolves to 72.172.89.185, and this is also the same IP for http://11165504-301870.domain.domaingateway.com/

So AFAIK it's just a misconfigured domain name :-D

@Tealc

Of course, if I'd been sharp enough to think of that, I would never have posted. I suppose all this security stuff has me paranoid. Cheers. :D
