I say that just in case you still have the willies from any surfing you might have done Saturday morning.
File this one under "oops"
From about 9:30 a.m. EST to 10:25 a.m. EST, every site clicked on through a Google search came with a warning; "This site may harm your computer".
The good news is it wasn't true. The Internet did not suddenly become a place where every single site in the world is malware.
The weird part is that initially there was some back and forth between Google and a site called StopBadware.org. Each were pointing the finger at the other for being the responsible party. Ultimately, Google took responsibility.
The good news; at least this didn't happen during the holiday shopping season or on a business day.
My question; are these warning pop-ups so frequent, as is, that few people take them seriously anymore?
There's got to be a better way to make surfing safer.
