Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer

January 31, 2009 | Out Of Topics | , ,

It seem that Google has experiencing a little technical problem just a few minutes ago. All my search results were brought to a page saying that visiting the web site may harm my computer. At first I thought it was only me.

Just a minute later, I saw some other people on plurk and twitter are getting the same warning message when they tried to open the page from Google’s search result. It said “Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer”.

I think they already handle the problem. My search results are no longer redirected into warning page as a few minutes ago.

Update:
This ‘unusual event’ also reported on Neatorama.

    Well the same thing happened to me when accessing Google a few minutes ago; however, I tried to alter the web address, leaving only the original/desired web url and it worked.
