Tetra Airwave google results being censored !

Postby Alfie » Wed Jan 16, 2019 8:47 pm

All new Tetra Airwave google results (especially ones about decoding and critical of tetra) are being censored and replaced by scam/virus/porn sites i kid you not !

Has anyone else noticed this ?? if not its easy for you to test and see :mrcool:

so as i own and AOR DV1 i have used google to keep up to date with the latest releases and developments. i do this with a lot of things i take interest in to get the latest and newest info out there and to be honest i have been hoping something will be released to decode tetra and unencrypt which i know is a long shot.

anyway back to the topic in hand. so to get all the latest and newest posts/articles/sites mentioning tetra airwave i use google and search for results only in the past 24hrs so i get only everything new. i have been doing this for a while now for "tetra airwave" and find a lot of results are replaced with porn/virus/scam sites. try it yourself to see. and i do use this method for a lot of searches but it is only for tetra airwave i have been noticing this odd occurrence.

I wont post screenshots/links of the porn and virus scam sites but to see what i mean go to http://www.google.com and type in tetra airwave. click tools and change any time to the last 24 hours and look at and click on the results....

This has been going on for a long time now. is it a cover up ? is it gov or tetra themselves doing it ? i dont know what it is but its a bit weird ?

Working ok here? I expect you have a virus or malware corrupting your search results!

An alternative to hitting your head on a brick wall with Airwave Tetra info, is to look into LUL Connect, the London Underground tetra system where there is more available information..

Thank you both with your help i appreciate it but it has got me really worried. could you please help a little more as it looks like i have a virus ??

just to double check. if i go to google.com on firefox (similar results with chrome) and do a search for tetra airwave and then choose past 24hrs i get the above results in the screen shot. i put a red ring around each one that leads to a bad virus/scam or porn/dating site. are you all getting these same results or is it just me ?

I am getting a couple of the same results, the rest are OK. The two that I found look like they have used popular search strings to lure in users..
Try the same thing with searches like 'Windows Hack' etc..

Thanks Mike much appreciated. does that look ok then and am i not infected ?

Before reading your reply i just downloaded malwarebytes from cnet and i havent quarantined them yet but it found these above

google says...

Spigot is an Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP.Optional.Spigot.A) also detected as (Adware.Spigot) that displays ads by Spigot, advertisement banners and sponsored links within Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome.


it really looks like i have that. do you get the same thing when you click the links ? is it just people manipulating google or is it a browser hijack of some type ?

again i very much appreciate your help with this :thumbup:

One night when I was HGV driving. I was doing a few early hours of the morning deliveries around the M25 area & listening to Radio 2. The news was late & when he finally arrived, it was due to a search engine issue. He had searched for some extra facts on someone, some where, some thing, what ever & ended up on a porn site. So had to fill paper work in. My wife had the same issue. She works for the NHS & was looking something up & ended up on a porn site, so had to fill in various forms & tell certain people what had happened as it happened on her login & thus without the forms would have ended up being accused of watching porn at work. A dismissible offence.
I do not know about now, but a few years ago searching Google using the names of a big pop star could be dodgy & I remember seeing a report about how many porn sites Google returned for a name like Brittany Spears..Remember her?
