Debian resolves non existing domains to itself

Hi,

I have a problem. I have a Debian 7.0 server that resolves non-existent domains (like jhdjkhfkjhsdkjhksjdjkdfbhdfjkdf.com) to his own IP. I know from my Debian-based NAS (and my Mac) that *nix could just say "unknown host" when trying to ping it.

Well, while this does seem like a cosmetic problem at the first try, this is a real problem when something goes wrong. It killed Akismet once as it resolved to itself and got 404 when trying to query.

What's the problem?

/etc/resolv.conf:
Code:

bind9 is currently stopped, so this should not be the problem.

Edit:
imagine the stars in rid****.sajonara.de as rid_d_i_c_k - it gets censored by XenForo, it seems. I was told ridd_ick is a movie with Vin Diesel which is why the server got named ridd_ick. *G*

First, disable IPv6. Then, tell us what happens if you use:
Code:
# cat /etc/resolv.conf
search sajonara.de
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4
# cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost

Hi,

thanks for your reply, but nothing changed :(

Code:
root@riddick:/home/rellek# cat /etc/sysctl.d/disableipv6.conf
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
root@riddick:/home/rellek# cat /etc/resolv.conf
