    The Internet is out to get me?

    Hi guys,

    Something really weird is going on. Google claims that every single search result, no matter what I search for, may harm my computer. Every single site is apparently out to get me.

    Anybody know what's wrong with Google or my connection to it? I've disabled my cache, cleared my cookies, done pretty much everything I can think of client-side, but the error persists.
    All the buzzt!

    If you are getting a popup claiming this, perhaps you have some threatware running on your machine.

    No programming language is perfect. There is not even a single best language; there are only languages well suited or perhaps poorly suited for particular purposes.

    Maybe Richard Stallman could be right about cloud computing.

    A search engine that scans for threats? I've never seen that before.

    Well, google does. When it "detects" a "harmful" site, it notifies you. How it detects them, I do not know.

    Reportedly, this was caused by a human error.
