Either Google has a bug or the entire internet is infected because no matter what you search for in Google right now it shows up with the warning, “This site may harm your computer.” Judging by the submissions to Digg, this probably started showing up around 9:46 eastern this morning. Nobody knows what’s going on yet, just that it’s very odd. UPDATE: And of 10:17 eastern, everything seems back to normal. You may recommence your early morning vanity searching. UPDATE: Human error. Someone typed in “/” by mistake. More info at StopBadware.com.
