For the past two days, when I click on a search result and I am sent to the r.duckduckgo.com redirect domain, nothing loads on the page. It just turns white and stays that way- claiming the page has loaded.
I go to duckduckgo.com
Everything loads fine, I search for Cake.
Results for cake come up. I see the wikipedia article on Cake and click on the search result.
It sends me to: http://r.duckduckgo.com/l/?kh=-1&uddg=ht...
This doesn't load at all, it's a white page.
View Source gives me:
What the heck is going on?
I think I was being browser hacked- pop ups were occurring last night and I've been running anti-spyware programs (symantec and malware bytes) to scan and delete the problem.
I kept having strange urls that didn't match what I was clicking on or going to, so I suspected I hadn't gotten rid of the problem.
Long story short, I narrowed it it down to the time symptoms started popping up and found certain installers that I hadn't put on my machine intentionally. I found ScorpionSaver and other advertisement malware apps that were running proxies on my machine- when I killed them with task manager they came back, so I deleted the installers and uninstalled the apps and now duckduckgo redirects correctly.
