Google Shutdown due to human error

The worlds largest search engine was temporarily mal-functioning creating chaos and utter confusion.The error tat was done by a Google employee was the reason for this problem..The problem started around 3.30 in the evening.There was panic all around whether the hackers had crashed the worlds biggest search engine.


Generally Google had a list of harmful sites and it warns the users not to visit them.One of the Google employee who was to input the entire harmful web site list made a wrong entry.He accidentally typed "\".So all the web sites where shown with the same problem.Finally the problem was sorted within 45 to 50 minutes.
