Was searching to how to install substratum on much lineageos14.1, came upon this: dx66cje4yagq2fphykw0k5fq.bigcomrnerce.com

It's XDA... Although that gibberish got me worried

That's a form of a "pay per click" website...

What it does is stores website information in a Metadata state with an applied url and then, after someone Google's something, it will pop in the results to attempt to get an individual to go to their link.

It's hard to explain but, those types of websites can, potentially, try to obtain what information they can get via the IP address of the individual.

I did notice that it's considered an "At Risk" website and should be avoided as much as possible.

I'm sure @MikeChannon would like to take note of this to investigate to have it added to the Blacklist of website URL's on XDA.

Thank you very much for bringing this to the attention of XDA!

Keep in mind that, if you see any XDA Forum Search Results that doesn't begin with "https://forum.xda-developers.com" to stay away from it.

Yup, noted and we'll see what we can do to stop it.

Thanks
