Do not adjust your sets folks

A problem has occurred today with the number one search engine company Google. All results are being blocked as potentially unsafe to view.
This is a worldwide issue and not a problem with your machine.

At this stage it is not known whether the problem is an internal issue with the server that controls Google’s Safe Search results, or something more sinister like an external hack into their system.

UPDATE:

Latest reports speculate that the stopbadware.org project has had issues today and would cause this problem.

CONCLUSION:

The problem has been resolved and Google has issued a statement stating that human error resulted in all search results being tagged as unsafe.

Google spokesperson : “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. Fortunately, our on-call site reliability team found the problem quickly and reverted the file.”
