QueryString variable bhcd2=1111013430?

On my site I am sometimes getting a QuesryString variable bhcd2=1111013430 tacked on to the current URL. (the number changes, but the name does not)

This is not in the code and if you right-click/Properties on the link, it doesn't show up.

Somehow it's getting appended when the page is loaded. I am using ASP and am passing a couple other QueryString variables but this is not one of them. Anyone ever seen this before?

By doing a few searches on 'bhcd2' and then 'bhcd' I cobbled together some information from a few sources that may help. First, I noticed that the query string variable 'bhcd2' usually seemed to occur on asp pages.

Digging further, I learned that one thing "bhcd" can stand for is "Browser Hawk Cookie Detector". That's an asp server side add-in that detects cookie content and re-writes it to a query string. And 'bhcd2' could quite likely stand for a second cookie.

Does that ring a bell?

Yes, I finally found something on that as well. Thanks for the info!
