Google Adsense login. sorry?
...automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application?

 4:28 pm on Mar 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

I just tried to login and was redirected to this page:

"We're sorry...
... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software."

Anyone see this?

I could also login, but as you wrote it is quite slow.

Got the same notice as zoltan.

This may not be because of you directly. There's a good chance it's your ISP that's blocked, not you. This has happened several times to the corporate environment where I work. It's not an Adsense thing, it's a Google-wide thing.

You shouldn't be totally locked out, there should be a captcha you can enter to get through manually, isn't there?

I think what is happening is there must be a bot attack on the adsense page or something like that and all the message is some increased scrutiny.

Looks like its working at a nice speed again now.
