Google went kaboom this morning! Every single site was listed as malicious. It was down for about 30 minutes. In that amount of time, I got quite a few laughs out of searching for things.

Here's the SlashDot article about it: Slashdot | Google Search Flagging Everything As Potentially Harmful

And here's some pics I took before it was fixed:

All that happened was their whitelist server went down. No idea why. Still, this is quite funny.

Here's the scoop on what went wrong.

Official Google Blog: "This site may harm your computer" on every search result?!?!

Too bad it's over...it was so funny to toy with while it lasted.

Google was marking every site as malicious.

Someone on their security team accidentally "marked all" on the malicious site list. It was like that for an hour or so.
