    Hi all,

    Did you notice every single result on any Google search returns "this site may harm your computer?"

    Yep, someone forgot to put 50 pence into the safebrowsing machine :D



    I think just to be safe we should pull out our internet connections and go huddle in the basement just in case it is the end.

    It's still completely random here....type "google" and hit search.... and after a few searches all sites are labelled as harmful again. Probably their servers are still being updated for the blooper.

    Re: Google did a boo-boo

    I been on Neowin Forums all night reading and this morning took a short trip to market in town, when i got back and done another neowin search i started seeing those warnings all over the place.

    I chalk it up to "glitch", either human done or programming error on their server.

    No biggie, but weird indeed.

    I thought I got hit with something today that blocked all links, I could not surf any where or any link. When I rolled back a snap shot all was well again,I feel better now seeing this thread.
