    I've seen it before. I think its just a bug in Google's implementation of denial of service protection.

    The same thing has happened to our school. Because so many people access google through two IPs (our school network connects to the internet through two connections), google keeps blocking out the school...

    I've come across it once, just hit refresh and it was back to normal.

    Just a little glitch I think.

    It's not their old logo, it's just their named typed in plain text. It's like this on all of their error pages.

    I had this issue at work a few weeks ago too. It's not even like I was searching for anything malicious, it would literally come up after every (any) search term.

    I see it all the time when I run my internet through proxy servers. It's okay.
