I'm noticing this strange output in my Apache error logs for one of my WordPress websites.

PHP Warning: file_get_contents(http://ip.googlescript.com/66.205.156.117?api_key=xxxxxxx&group=lib-js&ua=Mozilla%252F4.0%2B%2528compatible%253B%2BMSIE%2B7.0%253B%2BWindows%2BNT%2B5.1%253B%2B.NET%2BCLR%2B2.0.50727%253B%2B.NET%2BCLR%2B3.0.04506.30%253B%2B.NET%2BCLR%2B3.0.04506.648%2529&ip=66.205.156.117):
failed to open stream: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in /home/mydir/public_html/wp-content/plugins/Akismet3/Akismet3.php(23) :

The error keeps repeating with different IP addresses after the googlescript.com/ part and is strangely being thrown by the Akismet plugin.

Is this a valid error or did my site get injected with some malicious code?

Thanks.
