Narrowing Down the Zones

While the domain queries were running, I noticed another bit of information that I needed to confirm. There was a commonality between the IP address results, leading me to think LG had created “zones” to collect the data. I executed another quick command to confirm there was a relatively small number of IP Addresses in use:

cat dns_lookup_results.txt | awk '{print $5}' | sort | uniq

This command uses the “dns_lookup_results.txt” file as input to the awk command. The awk command ignores all data except the last field in the file, specifically the IP Address. It spits the results of the field parsing to a sort command, which is in turn stripped of all duplicates via the uniq command.

As we can see there are, in fact, only 3 IP Addresses the 142 domains point to, lending weight to a “zoned” style of data tracking. The IP Addresses are:

165.244.150.126
193.67.216.128
63.123.46.71

Breaking this down further, I pulled all of the domains that reference a specific IP Address, and summarized their results as follows:

The 193.67.216.128 IP is used to capture data from Europe and some surrounding countries, as per the list below:
