Yup - just posted the same exact thing. I thought it was only a one-time thing but I am still getting it right now on every search. Oh well - time for Yahoo searches...

Google appears fine to me here in NY. It is a little slow on some of the links.

Google.co.uk is down too.

G seems just a tad large for this to be a DDoS. Any word from Google people on this forum?

I'm being told that a hostile DNS attack was launched against google, and that a fake registration to google.com through our favourite spammer domain service <snip> was performed.

Opera works if you search using the built in toolbar or the "g widget" shortcut.

I'm near TO and Opera's working fine so long as you use the toolbar. If you try to search through G it doesn't work though.

Even Yahoo is down on and off.
It looks like the virus attack report is correct.
