Description (last modified by spirillen)

Hi,
I've seen 3 domains not listed in the hosts file that show ads in the Samsung Smart TV.

  • ads.samsungads.com
    • is the most annoying, it makes appearing featured third party apps (like Netflix) in the bottom bar.
  • enabler.datalake.mediaset.it (ticket:190)
  • hbbtv.mediaset.net (ticket:191)

Are two domains given by an Italian company that makes appearing every time you go onto one of there channel a popup of "premium features" you can access from the smart TV.
I'd appreciate if you can insert them inside the hosts file.
Thanks.

I'll reopen this issue, as the records haven't been added according to @MarcoDiFrancesco recommendations

We currently only have:

webtrekk.mediaset.net.rpz.mypdns.cloud
hbbtv.mediaset.net.rpz.mypdns.cloud

This issue is sliptted up in three as it contains three domains

See ticket:190 for mediaset.it and ticket:191 for mediaset.net


Here is a small screenshot of how much shit they are trying to collect to get a personal identifying profile on you and share it to third parties like governmental controlled media.

Samsung smart TV tracking and ads requests over DNS

The counts you see for blocked attempts is for a time frame of ~24 hours or ~10 hours of turned on TV.

The real sucker of cyber crime here is the Netflix, I don't have, I don't want it, I never pushed that fucking button to get there. So why is it exactly the SpyHardWare keeps pinging it?

Our recommendations is therefore to set up your TV's DNS to use www.mypdns.org DNS Firewall

As samsungads.com already is blocked I'm closing this issue and the two other domains listed in OP posts have there own tickets 190 and 191, I find no harm in this.
