Google Marked Every Site as "Harmful" This Morning [Oops]

3 Feb/09

Don’t be alarmed if it looked like the entire internet was infected with something earlier this morning—Google apparently tagged every search result, including its own sites, as something that “may harm your computer.”

The glitch seems to be fixed now (11:50 a.m., EST), and the tips we received from watchful readers came in between 9:52 and 10:20 a.m. EST. We’ll update if any official word on what happened comes out of Mountain View. Thanks to Jim and Andy for the screenshots, and to all the readers who tipped us.

Update: Google has put out the official word on what happened this morning. In a nutshell: A small bit of human error resulted in a falsely identified internet full of malware.

Here’s the page you saw if you actually clicked through to a result:
