Google Search Engine Problems
It has come to my attention that Google recently has a problem with their Search engine. If you use it do a search for information or a website using the Google search facility and you find a web site that has this notation on it, This site may be hacked, DO NOT click the link to that site!

That notation indicates that the website in question HAS been hacked. Or that it was recently hacked, been cleaned, but Google has not taken it off it's Hacked listing yet. The reason I know this is because a local website I am associated with was recently hacked. When you click on it, it takes you to a pornographic site instead. That problem has been fixed, but Google has not fixed their Search engine link yet.

You can do a search on any of the other browsers with no problem. Just DO NOT use that browser to bring up Google Search in it. This seems to be a problem with just the Google Search engine and Google is aware of this, and supposedly, is working on it. So if you are using Google Search, you might want to stop doing so. If you do use it, just be aware that if you find a listing with that "This site may be hacked" notation on it, DO NOT click on it because you are liable to get your PC infected.
