Is it common to see unwanted sites in your Target hosts



We've recently noticed a large number of pornographic sites appearing in our hosts list.

We're assuming this is due to a third party copying our code and using it in on their live websites.

We're trying to understand what motivation there is for a third party to do this?

Many thanks

Hi Stephan,

A domain appears in this list if a call to Target is made from the domain. Often, you could see domains from spider engines, language translator sites, or local disk drives. If the listed domain is not one your team uses, you can click Delete to remove it.   

So yes to answer your question it is kind of common to see unwanted domains in the hosts list.

For details and to restrict such domains you can create whitelists that specify hosts that are authorize to send mbox calls to Target.

Refer below doc for help:

Hope this helps.
