    and if I visit, I get the OpenDNS Guide, which says is not loading. links to a parent directory and a file named id, which is a script. The top level page simply says it is -Blue Raven, authorized distributor for Erze- with a link. Erze is apparently some Turkish company that makes things from plastic.

    Anyhow, what indications do you have that a hacker (by which I assume you mean 'malicious hacker') is operating (doing what?) from either of these addresses?

     permalink is the IP address of When you get this returned for any nameserver lookup, then the DNS could not resolve the domain at this time for whatever reason. No hacker is behind this, but this is how OpenDNS works.

    If this happens, visit
