DescriptionI don't know how but the lookup for this ( domain returns the results for a different domain ( Notice the .io at the end. I haven't yet found other domains where this issue occurs but I would assume that there are more.

This is can a security issue if this bug is used to hijack vulnerable domains.

This is was I get:
getent hosts
host is an alias for has address

Non-authoritative answer: canonical name =

Those entries look OK to me.
Mind I can't lookup the domain name alone ...

Yes those would be the correct entries.
From the same machine, dig gives the correct data:

$ getent hosts

To fully explain, the domain doesn't have the A record so no response is expected. For some reason on my machine the lookup from getent adds a `.io` at the end to this particular domain name

I'm going to try this in a brand new VM some time later maybe I can diff the config files... this is so wired.
