what's wrong with google?

Try a search in google and almost every result right now is labeled "this site may harm your computer" and you can't access anything.

WTF?

Re: what's wrong with google?

Woah..... that's strange... I'm at work today and our filters won't let me open up anything found on google due to "malicious web reputation."

The all powerful cloud computing headquarters took a shit this morning it seems. I guess it's karma for squishing a baby deer:

I notice Monster got hacked yesterday. Wonder what's going on with the world wide interwebs.

It's working now. That was weird. I wonder if they'll make a statement about it or just pretend it didn't happen.

Somebody's gonna get a fired. Probably more than one. The fact that there is not extensive checking already embedded in their systems is somewhat disconcerting. The system should not allow that type of basic human error to achieve such monsterously bad results.

No doubt. It's on the front page of DrudgeReport.com right now with the headline "Google Goes Mad." The fact that something as massive as Google was down for almost an hour is pretty unreal.

Plus these links:

Re: what's wrong with google?

Crap sorry I posted a new thread where I voiced my own problem with google and firefox (albeit a slightly different issue). Actually not much of a problem but I don't like the look of it, and not because the image I posted is allegedly of Britney Spears.
