Google's "human error" blacklists 'net

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2009/02...acklists-net/1

"Human error" is blamed for a glitch at Google that saw the site warning users that the entire internet could "harm your computer" for half an hour on Saturday.

First- and no I didn't even notice it, 30min is too small of a time frame. Anyone know how many hits they got during the down time?

Please don't bother stating you're first to post in a news thread... Ever- and no I didn't notice either. I don't use services such as that unless I'm browsing outside my circle of webpages, which is quite rare. In my experience, the only time I've come across malicious pages is when I'm searching for something illegal, eg cracks, which makes me feel like I've got my just desserts :P

I experienced this. I guessed it was a Google blunder and not the end of the world as we know it

Last (sorry, couldn't resist it)- I think this whole thing is actually a credit to google, as the only reason there is so much discussion surrounding this, is that in over ten years, google has never had a major **** up or significant downtime (at least, not that I know of)

How many other sites have that kind of track record?

I never got that error-message, but i noticed that web-search was down while every other search worked normally.
I did think it was the end of the wourld though.
