For the last several weeks I've had web browsers suggest very disturbing content with certain search terms.
The problem started when I visited mexico, with certain searches yielding unusual results.
I'm almost certain a malicious person is manipulating the content displayed to me, yet bizarrely all of the content seems to be indexed by google/yahoo, for example much of the disturbing content being from twitter/pinterest/imgur ect.
So my question is, what kind of malware or hacking could redirect a victims search results to disturbing content?
For example, a search for "Remy lacroix" yields mostly normal results, yet at the very bottom of the page is a disturbing image of a rotten foot.
Another example, A search for alina li will, after scrolling down a fair bit, display a picture of a hunter skinning a deer. The blog talks about how he got the deer and was going to make it into some sausage. this had absolutely NOTHING to do with my browser search.
I've noticed far more unusual or disturbing results then what is normal, many of them containing Spanish urls.
I understand all browsers will occasionally yield unrelated content but this is far to disturbing and frequent to just be a coincidence.
