People are reporting errors all over Google SERPS with the "This site may harm your computer" under every listing?

It got me a little worried at first, until I saw Google.com getting flagged as Badware :)

This was submitted 20 minutes after this story: http://sphinn.com/story/99186Makes you wonder about Sphinn. There were comments on the older story in Latest Comments while people were spinning the newer post.

@LtDraper - Not much to wonder about, people found this post via twitter and the submitter’s blog. The post also had screenshots showing the issue for those that missed it, so it makes sense that more people would Sphinn this submission.

Yep - I twittered this rather heavily but credit due to to everyone who was on this like a shot - @calilewis, seosmarty, techcrunch, davewiner were all twittering like crazy. Now, sadly, the fun is over....

The official explanation:http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/this-site-may-harm-your-computer-on.html"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."

DeSphinning even though it won’t matter.. But the echo chamber on this story was deafening and pointless.. More so than usual..
