Google Flagging Every Website As Malware
If you perform a Google search at the moment you will notice that Google is flagging every website that it returns as malware. The sentence "This site may harm your computer." appears below the title of each website in the Google index including sites like google.com, whitehouse.gov, yahoo.com and yes, even ghacks.net.
There is not even the possibility to load the website as a click on a link will lead to a page entitled Malware Warning which will tell the user that visiting the website will harm his computer.
The only real possibility at this moment is to switch to another search engine or copy and paste the url into the address bar and load the website manually.
It is yet unclear if this is a blunder caused by Google employees who did not pay attention before updating the search engine, by the malware engine or a hacking attempt.
Update: Google seems to have fixed the issue, everything seems back to normal.Advertisement
Well, they fixed it right away, everything works as usual at the moment.
Funny bug, thou…
Oh! just an hour ago one of my friend called me to ask about this problem. I thought he got a virus or something. I was offline and I didn’t bother to check it on my PC because I was so sure it was HIS problem. Finally, he cleared his cookies and said that the problem was gone. I said good and we hung up. LOL!
I know..They were sating the Gmail link as
This site may harm your computer.â€
Issue was fixed immediately, though I am sure people would have got freaked out!
