CNAME tracker

See original GitHub issue

The domain is cloaked with CNAME and is a tracking proxy. See this entry in uBlock Origin’s assets for reference. Here’s an example website: It uses the domain to cloak tracking requests. The subdomain is random and might change, but doesn’t do so very often. (Dataunlocker’s website mentions this). It would be nice if it was added as a host for blocking though DNS.

Not yet, but we plan to find a way to discover trackers hidden by reverse proxies a well.

@spirillen what we mean here is that the domains indeed may have those CNAMEs, but if we haven’t noticed a single A/AAAA query to those domains for the last 24 hours on AdGuard DNS, they’re simply not used in the wild, therefore there’s no need to keep them in the list.
