I was looking in the Behaviour tab of Analytics to see which pages are visited the most on my website and noticed that from January 8th 2018 onward this page began to appear:

rockabox/rockabox_buster.html?delivery_id=...... - lots more characters after that including Adsense code with publisher id.

The company "Scoota" also appear in the characters as in " ... rbbust=//assets.scoota.co/serving/15654/silicon.4.js ....". Scoota appears to be an ad serving company but I am not aware that I do business with them.

Yesterday these "rockabox" entries had grown to over 100 for that one day.

Looking up "Rockabox", it seems to be an iframe buster but I can't get any information as why it would be appearing in Analytics as a page on my website.

Anyone have any ideas about what it is and why it is suddenly appearing?

Thanks.

Either good or bad - the Rockabox entity was rolled into Scoota Ads a few years ago. They might be found in DFP AdSense ads. There have been reports (I'm not familiar with details) of XSS vulnerabilities. So either good or bad. Sorry for lack of details, but you can find out more in your AdSense acct.
