"Script error.". URL: https://e3m4drct5m1ays.cloudfront.net/items/loaders
Line number: 0 Error name: Stack: 

Now I don't actually know what cloudfront is or what it does. And I do not refer to this script in my site. So why would I be getting js error logged as if it was a script being run on my own site? This is using elmah logging.
