It seems to be working for me...but apparently it was down for awhile.

Google for something like 'email webmaster@cprogramming.com' or 'email@cprogramming.com'. You get a nice error message.

I've been using google off and on all day and haven't seen a problem.

Do you think Google should be disabling functionality to thwart a virus or worm? I'm not sure that is a good idea.

One would think they would state the reason. Can anyone decode the dump?

Working fine for me, but I did read this (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/3927963.stm) earlier, which also seems to implicate a MyDoom virus.

Seems like those errors aren't happening anymore. My guess is that that kind of blocking was just a quick fix, and they've implemented better filtering to catch searches by the MyDoom virus.
