    Just an FYI–I was getting this pop up everyday, sometimes multiple pop ups of it. I finally figured out that my roommate had downloaded the “unfriend” app from facebook. It is suppose to tell you who has unfriended you. I uninstalled that app and low and behold no more pop ups or weird redirects from google.

      • i’ve tracked it back to ireland here’s the report but it is listed as i started with a whois search and was lead to this IP address: then i did a ” view page source” which i found as the first url leads to something concerning apache. then i tried lead to an error page nothing of use there. next i tried there i found once again leading me to an error page. i thought i was stuck and at a dead end then i tried just “d1cebafy1ctaaq” i got 1 web site return with that info and its the report i posted above hope that this helps some.

        • after double checking my search results i found that my search for “d1cebafy1ctaaq” no longer works but on checking some of the other sites on the report i was able to find out that 2 of the irish sites listed share 2 common address 1 in ireland and 1 in seattle the shares both the same ireland address and seattle one. to with it is the only on to provide a phone number and a email.

          • “d1cebafy1ctaaq” does work i was using hte wrong search engine use google to get the website for the report
