Hi,
I have this message "this site may harm your computer" on all sites when I google [even proz].
Does anyone have an idea about what is this about?

TIA

I have been finding the same on my searches. I suppose it should be an error and that Google people will solve it very soon.

Must be a Google bug. Or maybe they've been hacked by Bill Gates ...

It must be a Google issue, as it was fine last night, although my Google search history wouldn't work - now it's back ok.

ALL sites are showing up as Malware on google preview, including sites that you know are safe.

I'm sure they'll sort it soon enough. Very strange though.

15:16 - seems to be ok now!

Hey... Jan 31, 2009

...didn't y'all know the Internet is a dangerous place - a very, very, VERY dangerous place?

Seems www.stopbadware.org was down. Quite unsettling nonetheless to witness just how fragile the infrastructure actually is, though.

Thanks Amy Feb 1, 2009



And there was me panicking!

Try using another browser?

I found things like "Your server has been hacked!"

"Google attributed the fault to human error and said most users were affected for about 40 minutes. What happened? Very simply, human error," wrote Marissa Mayer, vice president, search products and user experience, on the Official Google Blog."

Good to know that they still have humans?

"Google. You are looking for Googles? Buy Googles at http://www.crap.com/ "

Cheers
Chris
