My primary Earthlink nameserver is "188.8.131.52". Doing a dig on the DNS entry reports back a bogus IP:
ANSWER SECTION:rn www.google-analytics.com. 282 IN CNAME www-google-analytics.l.google.com.rn www-google-analytics.l.google.com. 222600 IN A 184.108.40.206
That IP address is bogus. A dig -x on it reports:
; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> -x 220.127.116.11
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:

Nice... "nuo.cn". I sent an email to the Earthlink abuse team and also to Google security. Hopefully it gets fixed.
