google warns everyone of the whole internet

On Saturday, something went amiss at google and caused all google search results to show as “This site may harm your computer.”

For a company that has become synonymous with search, this was an interesting exercise in what people noticed as well as how serious a “small” incident like this could become.

I notice the notices next to my google searches, but some of my searches still take me to “colorful” places. “Human error” was the cause which google explained on their blog but again, a strong reminder that google is a search and brand everyone has come so familiar with that an issue that occurs for minutes can create ripples though the internet.
