Google falls over

Dafydd Vaughan on 31 January 2009

Well, I never thought i’d see the day, but Google search has completely fallen over. No matter what you search for, Google returns a message saying that “This site may harm your computer”. Google will not let you visit the page unless you manually type the web address into your browser. It is even labelling its own site as potentially harmful.

Twitter is going crazy with (i reckon) an average of 700 tweets a minute regarding the problem which appears to be affecting the whole world.

More coverage at TechCrunch and Twitter Search.

Update: All seems to be fine now – problem lasted around 20 minutes
