I've determined my ISP is redirecting all Google searches from my home to their hosted Google. I consider this a privacy violation. Regardless of what DNS server/service I switch to, (at the router level) all Google activity is being redirected to ISP servers. Actually the full route is ISP->Germany->ISP->. To do this it is apparent they've got a static route setup for this. I've reached out to other engineers I know for a discussion on this, including a Pentest/Spyware engineer at one of the bigger pentest firms. What worries me is how they are redirecting if I am changing the DNS. I've checked caches for poisoning, and cannot find anything unusual. It looks like they have static routes setup for specific traffic. EFF a few years ago reported widespread search hijacking by ISPs. But nothing much has been reported since then. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2011/07/widespread-search-hijacking-in-the-us Further investigation, it appears they are doing this through Port 53 interception, to force DNS calls, even DNS configured to external servers, to push through Port 53 for redirection. I consider this highly unethical, and intrusive.
