OP's link redirecting via www.jdoqocy.com ?

Samwise Gamgee 225 August 15, 2012 at 10:13 PM
Anybody have this issue?

With some deals, when I click the OP's link (or deal), I see in the new browser window that the url is redirecting via a site called http://www.jdoqocy.com

It eventually times out cause that site I guess doesn't exist.

I've never noticed this before until today/recently.

Should I be concerned? Damn, I hope I don't have malware/spyware.

I'm using Firefox. On the Frontpage, I right-click the following deal, and select "Open Link in New Tab":
Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking Home 11 $10 After $40 Rebate + Free Shipping

I click the "New Egg" link, and a new window open.
The url shows something like, http://www.jdoqocy.com/click- ...

The new window eventually shows:
Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at www.jdoqocy.com.

That doesn't always happen. I can click the same New Egg link again and it will take me to the product page on the New Egg site.

Yeah, I just Googled and saw that too. I guess it is SD's money making partner. Perhaps jdoqocy site is just down?

Oh wait, AT&T has been having issues with their DNS today. Not sure if that might be why.

In any case, I was just concerned I might have gotten malware/spyware.

That would do it, and no, it's not malware or spyware Smilie

I've been having the same issues with jdoqocy.com

Thread (both mobile and desktop) [clicking on Corsair Force Series GT]:

On the PC:
Redirects work fine. Redirect is transparent and takes me to intended Newegg site.

On Android (mobile):
Neither mobile or desktop site links work. See attached images.

On the router:
DNS1: Comcast DNS (automatically forwarded) -- 75.75.75.75:53
DNS2: OpenDNS -- 208.67.222.222:53

**WiFi hotspots throw me the same error, as long as I'm using my mobile to visit the slickdeals thread.

**Note: This is not the first time the jdoqocy redirects do not work. I end up giving up on the deal since I can't see it on my mobile.

Are you using any sort of ad blocker on your phone?

No, but I do have ad blocker on the computer.

Seems like the phone is having trouble converting HTML ASCII into text example:
Code:

The messages you posted indicate an inability to contact the domain, not anything to do with the encoding - this is usually caused by a mobile ad blocker that alters the phone's hosts file to prevent connection to domains it considers advertisers (and they tend to be a bit overly aggressive).

Other things that can cause this include DNS issues or faulty routers out in the internet, though those tend to affect more people...

e: Comcast's DNS doesn't give me a result for jdoqocy.com; do you have any custom DNS settings on your phone?

Tmo HTC Amaze 4g running SpeedRom 7.8 [custom Android Ice Cream Sandwich ROM]. Perhaps the ROM has built in ad-blockers. Will flash with original HTC Ice Cream Sandwich Rom to get a "stock phone" and see if i still get the same jdoqocy errors

There aren't any custom DNS settings on my phone, unless there are ones built-in from the ROM I'm using that I'm unaware of. If Comcast DNS doesn't give a result shouldn't OpenDNS work as a fallback for DNS2? I will try Stock HTC Ice Cream Sandwich tomorrow and report back my jdoqocy findings.

If you want, you can take a look at your hosts file first (it's just a text file with a list of IPs and hostnames) and look for jdoqocy before reflashing the entire phone Smilie
