    Somehow it appears one of my high traffic domains has been hijacked. No matter if I change the dns entry to bodis or sedo it is forwarded using a site called dnslink.com to another users domain stealing my parking revenue. Perhaps dns manipulation somehow. It adds a ww10. Prefix to the domain and then is forwarded to someones parking lander. I notice their whois details are also protected by privacyprotect.org.

    Any ideas appreciated. Im still digging deeper...

    Shoot a message to your registrar. They should be able to help. DNS changes can take up to 2 days to take effect.

    If you still own the domain, change the name servers.

    Ok it seems that on my remote dedicated server the same domain works ok correctly using my own parking page.

    Not as sophisticated as I thought then. Either local dns or malware perhaps.

    Check your DNS settings.
    Flush your dns after you change your dns.
    Goto CMD and type ipconfig /flushdns
    Let me know if you need any help.

    Using nslookup on my laptop the domain resolves to the correct parking site. However opening the domain in firefox or chrome both get forwarded to the scammers parking page. Strangely its only this website. Other websites open fine which is why I didnt think it was malware to start with.

    So maybe a form of malware on linux. Anyone recommend a good malware scanner for linux?
