Fifteen Minutes of Infamy: Google’s Epic Fail

While you were sleeping in this morning, Google decided to break the internet for about 15 minutes. TechCrunch (along with most other blogs that are active this morning) has screencaps that show how every site was flagged as malware in the search engine. Whoops!

EDIT: Here's the official response from the Search Engine VP. I quoted a bit of it below. You can carry on with your digital lives, netizens.

We periodically receive updates to that list and received one such update to release on the site this morning. Unfortunately (and here's the human error), the URL of '/' was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and '/' expands to all URLs.
