    I expect someone at Google is getting a bit of a telling off now. I wonder how much revenue they lose with a half hour effective outage like that? Someone somewhere will work it out I'm sure!

    I'd like to see their advertising revenue for the last half hour... I suspect it may just have cost the company a few million

    It seems they may have got a bit frantic turning various things off and back on, the ads disappeared temporarily, and once they got to work the malicious software messages disappeared and reappeared.

    According to this site, there is a very similar problem affecting GMail right now. I don;t have an account so can't check.

    Right, who was it who typed 'google' into google, thereby breaking the internet for half an hour.

    I was doing a search for something earlier and thought to myself that Google is silly for marking every site with these particular search terms as unsafe... but now it makes sense.
