I noticed, that requests going to data.gosquared.com are not yet blocked. Going to https://www.gosquared.com/ it looks like, it's some kind of analytics software for realtime analytics.

Found it on www.speedtest.net due do the latest changeset of default.action file.

So, shouldn't this site be blocked, as it is some 3rd party analysis app?

Cheers

    Thanks for the report. I agree that it looks like a tracking URL.

    Can you confirm that the "speed test" continues to work if requests to data.gosquared.com/ are blocked?
