We're sorry...

... but we can't process your request right now. A computer virus or spyware application is sending us automated requests, and it appears that your computer or network has been infected.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your computer is free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google.

Blurg? First time I've ever seen something like that from them.. hopefully the uni's NOC folks are aware of the issue. I could imagine an infected system on a network like theirs could really cause some problems.. bad enough with zombienets on DSL/cable, but those usually have relatively modest uplink bandwidth.

Pity you don't get issued with externally routable IPs, I suppose - then it'd be much simpler for them to just block access to the offending addresses, rather than having to cut off the entire local network, apparently. Wow.

There was a virus called "santy" that infected phpBB2 bulletin boards. It found them using google to look for "viewtopic.php". Santy isn't spreading anymore because google returns the page you pasted above instead of results for a specific query using this term.

Sooo either there's a phpBB2 that's still infected that is sharing your external IP, there's a new virus around that google is blocking in this way (though I don't know of one), or you made a request to google that made it think you're a virus.
