Google shows every site as dangerous?

 3:51 pm on Jan 31, 2009 (gmt 0)

If this is not the correct place to post this, please move it.

Every site I have searched for through google searched including this one, yahoo, and even a google search for google turns up a This site may harm your computer warning. The ones that didn't on the first search did when you do a hard refresh of the browser.

Is this an issue with google? Has google been hacked or an error in their checking system?

At first I was freaked out when a couple of the sites I am webmaster on showed the warning, but since it shows the same warning for yahoo and even google itself I'm a bit less worried.

At first when clicking a warned link on google I got a page giving options of going to the site, going to webmasters tools or a explaination page about maleware. Now clicking on the link gives a 403

for this domain for example
Your client does not have permission to get URL /interstitial?url=http://www.webmasterworld.com/ from this server. (Client IP address: 69.152.#*$!.xx)

I saw the same thing on every search I did. It seems to be cleaned up now as of 11:30 am.

Welcome aboard silentboo, not seeing this here. It's most likely related to your AV software or maybe you picked up a virus or malware somewhere along the way.

BBC is reporting it for Google:

Let's take all further discussion to the Google Search News forum:
