Yesterday 04 OCT 13 I was merrily doing some searching when I noticed than in the tab portion of my Firefox browser for an instant I saw that she searches I was clicking on were being redirected to blekko although the results were will within the original search engine.
I did a scan with malwarebytes and it came up with a whole host of things and which I'll post along with this question but there was nothing in it that even remotely suggested blekko. Upon searching about blekko I learned that this could well be something not exactly "kosher" !
I noticed than in doing other scans that this redirect thing was not happening and then in dawned upon me that this was only happening when I was doing searches with the search "engine" that is used by PCH (Publishers Clearing House).
Upon doing a search with my favorite search engine, duck duck go, I could find no relationship between blekko and PCH, however it does seem strange to me that this occurrence would only happen when using the PCH search portal.
Bottom line here is that I am very suspicious of PCH and their methods pertaining to searching. get this bad feeling about the entire matter.
Secondly, I'd like someone to take a look at this Malwarebytes scan report and see if there is really anything there that I should be aware about and should delete, etc.
Any help and confirmation about these two possibly unrelated events would be highly appreciated. Since doing the malwarebyte scan I have not attempted acans with other engines, although I have several at my disposal.
