Google bug flags entire Web as potentially harmful
January 31, 2009 11:30 AM

Google, the world's dominant search engine, had its problems earlier
today, tagging every search result with the terms "This site may harm
your computer."

The bug, which apparently lasted less than an hour, has been reported
by the Washington Post, TechCrunch and zdnet.com, among others, and
it's been all over Twitter and numerous blogs as well. Here's the
Google news search results for the problem.

No word yet from Google on what the problem was, what caused it,
exactly how long it lasted or what will be done to prevent a re-occurrence.

Here's a statement this morning from StopBadware.org, a group that
works with Google and other sites to identify potentially harmful
sites on the Web: "This morning, an apparent glitch at Google caused
nearly every search listing to carry the "Warning! This site may harm
your computer" message. Users who attempted to click through the
results saw the "interstitial" warning page that mentions the
possibility of badware and refers people to StopBadware.org for more
information. This led to a denial of service of our website, as
millions of Google users attempted to visit our site for more
information. We are working now to bring the site back up. We are
also awaiting word from Google about what happened to cause the false
warnings."
