I'm getting a little scared because whenever i search for something on Google,
every search result returned is flagged as "this site may harm you computer"
for example, i search for "Microsoft", and the first search result, (their website) is labeled as "this site may harm your computer"
I'm not sure if its a virus on my part or just a temporarily messed up Google, but I'm sort of scared to surf the internet right now
is it possible that every single website has been infected with a virus? I certainly hope not. Or is it a virus on my computer doing this fiendish thing?
Help please :thumbsup:

Just getting the same here, so clicked on an item for a site that I know should be safe. Got re-directed to a "Google" page with a link to "Googles Safe Browsing Diagnostic" Page. Clicking that link gives a 502 Server Error. Am guessing it could be Google but don't really know.

Any expert out there have any ideas?

I don't think it's Malware, I got the same thing from a computer that just had it's HD wiped and the OS reinstalled yesterday, it hasn't had anything new installed on it .

I'm starting to see the problem being mentioned in other forums all over the net

I think it's a huge f-u on Google's part. I had no problems doing searches yesterday with Google as my primary search engine. Today almost EVERY site comes with that warning. There is no way that many website are "infected" with malware.

What's worse is that even if you ignore the warning, there's no way to actually get to the website through Google. I've looked for ways for Yoosers to get around it, but no joy: anything I've found is geared towards the webmasters of the suspected sites. NOTHING TO HELP US. And try and find anything on Google itself? Forget it?! :thumbsup:

So, anyone got the scoop?
