On January 31, 2009, human error at Google led to a lone forward slash being entered into Google's list of potentially harmful web sites. This caused every single site on the web to show up as potentially harmful in Google's search results. These erroneous reports appeared between approximately 6:29am and 7:25am PST. Google issued a post on their official blog outlining the issue and apologizing to those who were inconvenienced.
