Google Issued Bogus Site Warning Saturday Morning

Rate this Entry
In case any of you were searching the Internet via Google on Saturday morning (Jan. 31) between 9:30-10:30 Eastern Time, you would have seen a warning on ALL search results. It would have said:


"This site may harm your computer."


It was caused by a bad entry in the Google data base. There was NO problem on dwerden.com or tubaeuph.com (or most other sites where you saw the warning).


If you use Gmail and tried to follow a link, you might have seen this message during the same time period:


"This message may not be from whom it claims to be."


That was also a false alarm for most sites (there ARE some bad sites out there, so as always, be careful). You can read the whole story here:


C-Net.com


I hope this did not cause any potential visitors unnecessary concern.
