What is s.nsdsvc.com?

I have been getting a bunch of hits from http://s.nsdsvc.com/App/DddWrapper.swf?c=3. The hits seem like real people, not robots. But there's nothing on that website. Their whois information is private. If you go to that page you just get a blank flash script (is it blank?). Some random post mentions it and it seems to be related to adobe, but that may be just because it's a ".swf". Anyone have any better ideas?

My guess is that it's a script for bouncing people from one site to another, but I really have no idea.

If still interested in answer, I just found this topic at StackExchange, having the same problem:

http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/17323/weird-crossdomain-xml-requests

The hits are caused by a broken browser addon, which is why they looks as if they were not done by a bot.

It's a flash script most likely trying to access your crossdomain.xml

Yontoo is known to be malicious adware similar to Text Enhance which all run adware through browsers using flash.
