Foreign domains showing up in reports

mooreevan 17-07-2018

Hello most intelligent forum,

I've inherited a system that has domains that my company does not control showing up in its reports.

Examples, specifically from the Site Sections report:

view.ceros.com

fanyi.myyoudao.com

translate.baiducontent.com

cc.bingj.com

sexualpleaswo.xxx4luvv.com

us.hideproxy.me

sitetrans.naver.net

I'm not completely familiar with the implementation yet so I could use some help.

The scope is extremely small, most have a single hit in a month, however, I have not experienced this. These domains first came up in the Site Section report, which I believe uses the s.channel variable. I've since found them in the Page report as well.

Questions:

- What is a possible nature of this issue - poor/crossthreaded implementation? security threat? malware?

- Where might I look to eliminate these domains from all reports moving forward?

Thank you!

This sounds like a coding issue or a re-purposed code on a foreign website.

A

Site section should not be reporting web domains... So either that site section variable is incorrectly populating or you have folder with those names setup.

Do a Domain report and see actual web domains reporting in to your report suite.

B

Someone has used your code snippet on a 3rd party web site which now is injecting into your report suite. Can you correlate the section report to see actual URL associated? If so got to URL and check debugger output to see.

Good luck

The channel variable seems to be populating by URL based domain. And the URLs that used by the other domains (the ones that are reachable) seem to be serving up my content via iframe. So it seems to be a configuration issue. Thanks for the help.
