Google goes mad!

Earlier today I was horrified when Google had decided that every website on the internet was a malware risk and “may harm your computer”.

Google mistaked the whole of the internet for a malware risk.

For most of the afternoon I had to manually enter Google search links into my browser as Google just said I would have to manually go to the site.

According to a report here, http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/01/31/google_malware_snafu/, it was a nationwide issue and my computer wasn’t insane (as I thought).

As far as I am aware, I found the problem fixed by 4.30pm UK time.

The problem has now been fixed, but what the hell caused it?!
