Google hacked?
Patriot Room ^ | January 31, 2009 | Clyde Middleton

Is anyone else seeing this? Every single search I do in Google comes back with this entry under each result: "This site may harm your computer." Click on any site and I get this warning: "Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!" I need to cut and paste the URL to get to my destination.

I searched for an RNC ad on YouTube. Got it. I searched for something else conservative-politics genre - got it. So I searched Google using "anything." Got it.

Am hearing it form readers now, too.

Seeing the same thing here - probably a major malfunction in the Google database.

Glad it’s not just me. Yahoo is working fine.

Happened the first time I used it today. Then it went back to normal.

Yes.

Thanks for this post, I was wondering if my computer was the problem.

I am getting it too.

But I used Google earlier this morning, about 5 - 6 AM Eastern time. No message then.

But now about 9 - 10 AM I am getting the message.

But Yahoo (I use AltaVista which is the same) is also doing some of the same stuff that Google is.

Filtering content, but at the same time advocating New Neutrality.

I got it today when I did the search using “freerepublic.com.” I guess Google doesn’t like us.

Third thread posted about this in the past half-hour. There's more than just one search engine out there.

In fact, there are hundreds, some of which are specialized and just might be more suitable for your particular search than Google.

There's a site, beaucoup.com that contains a compendium of a whole bunch of them.

Frankly it's past time for us all to be boycotting Google, as they're clearly showing their political agenda and skewing what they present to us as what ought to be unbiased search results.

There was a note on the side of Fox news last night that Google “fixed the obama google bomb”.

Perhaps they caused a problem aat the same time. Interesting to see they could do it for obama, but not Bush.

Maybe we should just get used to being second class citizens, under the Obama reign. Maybe get some yellow armbands, soon.

There was a problem with their malware detection engine. See this for more info.

Yeah, it was hacked.

Yesterday it was hacked in a different way - every search kept bringing up pages of the same click-through websites that have no content and just want you to click on them so they get hits. All my regular searches were bringing that stuff up. It was fixed a while later.

My non-computer savvy husband was doing a search this morning and didn’t know what to think. I told him not to go anywhere but when I finally got up and looked I saw safe sites with it to and told him to ignore it.
