CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Today wecognized seek-aid.com domain as a results page for bad domains in Safari and Netscape (instead of simple ‘server not available’).

Example:
Bad domain: alkjdf.gom
RESULT: http://www5.seek-aid.com/search?qo=alkjdf.gom&rn=c3OeKgOdtZ6u6Qv

The resulting page did not occur when using Comcast Broadband. It only occurred using the WOWWAY Internet service. A call to a WOWWAY customer service elicited a response that they were not causing the search result page from seek-aid.com. The fact that this is showing up on WOWWAY and not Comcast, points to the fact that there is referral happening from the DNS servers from WOWWAY that are not happening from Comcast.net.

The page has what appears to be affiliate links and a Yahoo! search box. There is an About link at the bottom of the page which does not show any company information. The About link brinks users to a Opt-Out page that gives instruction to select to stop seeing the aid-seek.com result page. The following is an excerpt from that page:

It was also noted recently that forwarded domains that are registered with GoDaddy.com were not following all the way throught to their forwared domains. WOWWAY users had to hit the enter key a second time to get the desired page to display. It is unknown if this is related to something new that WOWWAY might be doing with their DNS servers.
