If I click on a link to Google’s cached pages, or on ‘View as HTML’, no matter what the search is for, I get this:
Warning – phishing (web forgery) suspected
The site you are trying to visit has been identified as a forgery, intended to trick you into disclosing financial, personal or other sensitive information.
- Return to the previous page and pick another result.
- Try another search to find what you’re looking for.
Or you can continue to http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:nInaxmec3voJ:www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/technology/+google+may+harm+your+computer&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=uk at your own risk.
If you believe that this site is not actually a phishing site, you can report an incorrect warning.

However, on Internet Explorer or Chrome, no problems. As for the default IT solution of restarting, no joy there, either. Which leaves one last possibility (that I can think of): disable the Grease Monkey plug-in (not that it should be running any scripts for google.co.uk anyway).
RESULT: Google is no longer accusing itself of phishing. Whether it really was some kind of clash with the Grease Monkey plug-in, however, I have no idea, since re-enabling it hasn’t caused the problem to return.
CONCLUSION: Another Google hiccup? Just one of those things? Probably the latter, I suspect – unless anyone else happened to see this? Answers in the usual place…
