ANYONE ELSE THINK THAT GOOGLE'S BEEN HACKED?

Every time I try to google this morning I get a weird message that the page may hurt my computer! Anyone else getting this?

Just been discussing on the Shout. Looks like it's a common problem with both Google images & web!

No problem with Google itself but yesterday when I Googled information on Chilean corn pie, (yeah, I know) I got a virus warning. I deleted the site and ran a scan-----no virus. All this because of my curiosity about corn pie? Jeeez!

Because that's COMMUNIST Chilean pie. It's keyword flagged by the pentagon. Just search for Chilean with the COM next time.

OHHHHHH! I thought you were eating South American commie pie. You just can't do things like that on the Web, these days. But CORN...geez there shouldn't be a Pentagon red flag on corn.

It's very red. That's what I've been TOLD anyway.
Of course I do not eat South American commie pie, myself.

Lol. I'm sorry. Just thought you should know it can be dangerous surfing around in pie sites.
I am curious what you were curious about.

Hey I can offer that if you get a good roast, marinate it in Chipotle (I use raspberry) overnight, then use your slow cooker, you get an out-of-this world delicious tender roast.

"...and of course pissing off some of the liberal, bleeding heart, idealistic members of Sploofus in the forums."

Oops. See I'm new here, and if I'd read your profile, duck guy, I'd know you could not POSSIBLY have been searching for communist Chilean pie.

So let's move on. To the topic at hand. Hackers in Google. Is it fixed?

A friend! Thank gawd.

I was on a roll about surfing the net and how truly...there are red flag words and sites. Which...I suppose doesn't have much to do with Hackers in google. It's just my overall mistrust of the net. How easily it can be hacked...how often it is...everyone, like banks and businesses...keep pushing us on to the net, so they can automate and save money--without making sure its safe.

Thus I am not surprised to hear there's some problem with Google. I've had trouble with Firefox for about two weeks. Just use caution while moving your entire life onto the web, that's all.

Godwit, Donden is not a duck; he is a shmoo. A shmoo is a loveable character developed by Al Capp in his cartoon strip "Lil Abner."

"The unusual creature loved humans, laid eggs and bottles of Grade A milk in an instant, and would gladly die and change itself into a sizzling steak if its owner merely looked at it hungrily."

Hmm, does anyone see a problem with that description? I haven't gotten the impression that Donden is quite THAT accommodating!

Hmm...well, sometimes an icon gives us opportunity to present our better side. If he wants to be a schmooo...a schmooo it is.

It was "human error".

When updating the warning list file the URL / was included. Since all urls expand from / all web sites were considered dangerous. Shows how one simple keystroke can bring down the most used search engine in the world.

Astounding! Thanks for that!
It is amazing...one keystroke, one person, the whole system.
Hopefully that person has not joined the ranks of the unemployed.

LOL Love to help you out, Godwit, but my posts seem to be toxic on a personal level to many. Glad you are here as you are indeed hilarious -also thank you for so graciously accepting my private apology.- Linda

Just to be safe, though, stick to American corn pie. You never know.

In answer to the question what commie pie tastes like -- who cares? Everyone gets a piece!

LOL! Foogs...great advice! Commie anything can be dangerous territory. I was thinking of those hilarious skits where someone misunderstands and that just keeps getting worse and worse...

Strange, as I think on it, the Fall guy was never laughing. Sorry to Schmoo. I din't mean nuthing by it. Do tell us sometime about your Chilean Pie.

Linda! Too hilarious. You may be right that YOU jumping in to get me out of a bad spot just isn't a good idea.
lol.

Yes, and do not go near any political thread as you will most likely get bashed on a personal level regardless of the fact that you are new and "clueless' as to the dynamics here. The subtle bashing spills over a bit into other types of posts but folks try harder to be nice to each other. That excludes Donden as he is sarcastic to EvERYONE EVERYWHERE! LOL Linda

So...why do we have to do a lot of research, and form this company, and constantly update it, to warn people about bad sites? Can't we dump the bad sites? It seems strange if a site is "known to" be malicious, then...why can't we ban or block it?

Darn! I left this forum too soon. If I would have stuck around my wife would not have had to take me to the emergency room and I would not have to type this with my pinkie finger.
Yes, I agree with Linda,,,,,Godwit is a refreshing addition to the forums.
