Google Might Be Infected

Google is issuing an online advisory to computer users that their machines may be infected with malicious software. 

 The company has posted a notice on its own blog saying some people using Google’s search service will notice a prominent banner stating, quote, “your computer appears to be infected.”  Users will be offered a link that will help eradicate the problem.  Malicious software, also known as malware, is almost always downloaded unintentionally by a computer user who opens an e-mail attachment or downloads an infected program.  The malware in question causes infected machines to send messages to Google.
