Make sure you do not park your www or non www version of your domain, says Google.

Ok, someone mentioned that FF is all of sudden crashing, I reckon, it's crashing on me since I've read that post. What's up with that?

Google overhauls Google Places, removing third party reviews and instead linking over to sites like Yelp. Showing snippets of those reviews had become a fairly large issue for Google. Google is showing its own user reviews instead. These come from the former Hotpot service. I'd thought maybe Hotpot was being renamed Google Places as part today's change, but that absorption actually happened in April.

We just posted this update to the Google blog about the malware notice we started showing on Google search results yesterday:

Update July 20, 2011: We've seen a few common questions we thought we'd address here:
- The malware appears to have gotten onto users' computers from one of roughly a hundred variants of fake antivirus, or "fake AV" software that has been in circulation for a while. We aren't aware of a common name for the malware.
- We believe a couple million machines are affected by this malware.
- We've heard from a number of you that you're thinking about the potential for an attacker to copy our notice and attempt to point users to a dangerous site instead. It's a good security practice to be cautious about the links you click, so the spirit of those comments is spot-on. We thought about this, too, which is why the notice appears only at the top of our search results page. Falsifying the message on this page would require prior compromise of that computer, so the notice is not a risk to additional users.
- In the meantime, we've been able to successfully warn hundreds of thousands of users that their computer is infected. These are people who otherwise may never have known.
