Well, I said I would get in touch with Doubleclick – their response was interesting – I quote:


“it’s to confuse people… look you get the same results:


openadstream.net/ad0.php?url=http://www.google.com/click/nxtgcbb80290000125ave/direct/wi/ai&key=V24567233828272323&c=127500043


openadstream.net/ad0.php?url=http://www.microsoft.com/click/nxtgcbb80290000125ave/direct/wi/ai&key=V24567233828272323&c=127500043″


The original URL I provided was:


openadstream.net/ad0.php?url=http://ad.doubleclick.net/click/nxtgcbb80290000125ave/direct/wi/ai&key=V24567233828272323&c=127500043


Each of those URL renders the same result – a plain white white page with the text “stats=917174773”


Oh, and guess who supplies the name servers for openadstream.net – yep, you guessed it – estboxes.com aka estdomains – a domain that has already been mentioned once in my blog today.
