    Exclamation Was Google Hacked...Link Inside

    Ok I just stumbled across this article

    And it claims that Google was being redirected to another site for a short time. What raises my eyebrow is the fact that Google was down for me, but I never seen the redirected site in question.

    Anybody here at SitePoint noticed anything weird ?
    I personally find it hard to believe that they were hacked with the amount of servers they have.I think that this is just a shameless promotion technique by the owner of the sogo site.

    Also I wouldn't recommend going to sogosearch dot com as it seems to be a spyware related site.

    Thanks

    People are reporting Google and Adsense was down for some servers but not others. Certainly, interesting if a working redirect was obtained, because that would imply a fairly heavy-duty security breach.

    Then again Blogger has practically ground to a halt, but only due to weight of numbers.

    Nothing big prospers for long...
