Google goes evil

Recommended Posts

Ok... so I'm searching for something... go to google... type in my query and get the results.Every single link that showed up in the results is disabled and marked as 'malware warning'.All of them.Just do a google on avsim. Look for yourself. :)It doesn't matter what you search for... every single link returned is marked as a 'malware warning' and disabled.

Looks like a big in there software. I get inconsistent results. The first time I search for AVSIM I get the warning, I tried to search again, and get no warning. Then periodically it come back.

It was on the news on the radio, Google was loading an update to it's malware list, and inadvertently set everything as malware. They have since corrected the issue!!

Heh, well by declaring the entire interweb malware... they shut down their entire search engine for a few hours. ;)

That was long my favorite search engine! I haven't used it myself for the last four years or so... :(I just did a Google Search for dogpile.com......then a dogpile.com Search for google.com...In both cases, they listed one another at the top of the heap... :(
