I had been troubleshooting a subdomain remapping problem, which was resolved by this post (thank you!).
But in the midst of sniffing out bad links, I came upon a very odd feature hidden in the HTML of one of my pages:
In the source, I see a large and odd looking block of code in a “hidden” tag called “data-preloaded”. It seems like a link to a bunch of different things, but honestly, it looks like link stuffing or something odd like that. Two questions:
- What is the purpose of this block?
- Is there any reason to be concerned about it, like if there would be sensitive information place in there?
Much like when I peek under the hood of my car, I see things that are quite complicated and sometimes messy, but not necessarily broken or nefarious. I’m curious all the same.
