Why duckduckgo randomly tries to run script on searched pages ? Picture related.

I have seen this happen before but inconsistently. The picture is from "keyword site: sitename", but it doesn't do that for all the time. What is this script and what does it do ?

Congratulations, you just learnt that you can't trust anything to work as memed.

Don't worry about it, man. I'm a duck. You can trust me.

>>52634489
its clear from the domain name: you are being hacked

Ahh, thanks. You are right, I'm dumb enough to not realize it. DDG runs scripts on non-encrypted site, there's no ssl, I just checked with few other site. DDG only injects it's crap on non-ssl site.

But why? Anyone here smart enough to know what it does ?

to answer your question: yes.

>>52634709
ok smartannons, what does it do?

You can turn that off.

But then every other site will be able to read your search terms.

>>52636451
If you are saying it's the Redirect option: "Prevent sharing of your search with sites you click on", I never had that on.

>>52636558
Then you're either stupid or a liar or both and either way this is bait.
