Wowhead hacked or going rogue ?

I've noticed a lot of data getting uploaded from my computer.
After investigation , netlimiter and net balancer are telling me that I'm uploading to . This only occurs when wowhead is opened (using chrome) .
Here is a DNS lookup of that IP
IP Address:
Handle: NET-192-33-24-0-1
Registration Date: 11/12/12
Org: Instart Logic, Inc
Org Handle: IL-69
Address: 450 Lambert Ave
City: Palo Alto
State/Province: CA
Postal Code: 94306

So this is the company I'm uploading to :

If someone can double check if wowhead is indeed sucking up data from you aswell, I think its important that the community is aware of that since wowhead is officially supported by blizzard.

Interesting, if minor development: the stickied thread on this mess, which had been locked, is now unlocked again.

To put minds at ease - the thread was locked temporarily to clean up some of the more...unsavory comments that were appearing. We want everyone to feel welcome posting on our forums, but once language turns harsh, that feeling of inclusion or even desire to post can be squelched. I'll say the same here as I did in the stickied thread. Be nice, watch the language, and let's stay on topic.
