    Question Google Problems?

    Hey gang, I was Googling this morning, and all of a sudden every page redirects to this. What gives? Every search I'm running yields the same result:


    Is it possible Teh Google has been corrupted? Or is it far more likely that there's something wrong with my PC?

    I'm glad you pointed that out. I get the same here, just in the past hour, and chances of us both having identical PC trouble being slim, I think Google is getting a dDos attack.
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.

    But ... but ... without Teh Google ... we're all doomed. DOOMED!

    -edit-

    Oh, wait, Gmail is still okay, so life may be able to continue in some stunted form ...

    -edit of the edit-

    Seems that people are noticing that Teh Internets Are Broken!

    The Google Anti-malware function is broken, and therefore reporting every single searched result as a dangerous site. Check it out!

    Getting the same here.

    At least I know now it's not some malware in my PC getting up to no good.

    Slashdot is on the case. Of use: There's a plugin for Firefox that lets you do an end-run around Google's malfunctioning malware alert.

    Tested it and it works like a charm. Now I alone have the Internets for my personal use. Cower! Cower in fear!

    Just noticed the same. And some more: at times I got a "Forbidden" (403) error complaining about the Google interstitial pages. Ooh... is Google up to no good? Or is it just warning us that Wikipedia is not the source of knowledge & wisdom?

    EDIT: It is 'fixed' now.

    From networkworld.com, quoting google vp:

    . "Unfortunately (and here's the human error), the URL of '/' was mistakenly checked as a value to the file and '/' expands to all URLs," she wrote. "Fortunately, our on-call site reliability team found the problem quickly and reverted the file."
    So, a single typo error.

    Wow. I thought those days were gone.
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.
