Google is Broken Posted by Mikko @ 15:15 GMT

Right now, Google does not work.

Results for any search will be labeled as "This site may harm your computer".

In which case, Google won't allow you to access any of the search results via links as they're using info from StopBadware.org to warn people away from harmful sites.

Google Broken

We don't remember such big worldwide outage of Google since a variant of Mydoom caused an indirect DDoS on it in 2004.

Oh well.

Back to Alta Vista?
