Solved when entering a search in GIBIRU, it is hijacked by google.

July 30, 2015 at 13:41:57
Specs: Windows 7
Results from the GIBIRU search come back with results from Google Custom. It happens on every computer I've tried, so doesn't appear to be a virus since any of the other computers hasn't had a recent download or update. How does Google Custom hijack GIBIRU search engine??

"GIBIRU has been working perfectly until two days ago"
Try another.

"Following DuckDuckGo and Startpage (the former ixquick), Gibiru is the latest addition to the slowly growing group of anonymous search engines, all of which promise to put your privacy before their profits. Like Startpage, one of Gibiru's selling points is that you may use it to privately search Google's own data banks – giving you all the benefits of a Google search but with none of the privacy risks"

"Now all google advertisements and censored results"

"escape from the google filter bubble.

The search system used by Gibiru apparently follows a modified Google algorithm that allows you to receive the search results you are used to from Google while still concealing your identity from Google's servers. If true, your searches won't be modified according to who you are, and you will be free of the so-called "Google filter bubble"

GIBIRU has been working perfectly until two days ago. Uncensored results to politically sensitive questions. Now all google advertisements and censored results.

I did a gibiru and a google search for arlene martel (Spock's betrothed). The gibiru search returned 'about' 21,300 results while google had 353,000 and in slightly different order, indicating they're not exactly the same. At the bottom of the gibiru page it said 'powered by google custom search' so I think Johnw is correct and there's not a problem with the results. Maybe gibiru just changed their look in the last couple of days

That validates that the GIBIRU search has been hacked by Google. Just for giggles, try to access a controversial site and you will find that GIBIRU search will be "powered by google custom search" and will not return uncensored results. Not only their look, but the results have changed. No longer is GIBIRU anonymous or able to return uncensored results.

Gibiru may have changed its policies but I don't see how it could be hacked by google. They would have no reason to do that. It would only get them in trouble. And gibiru would have fixed or pulled the page by now.
