Webmasters this week were greeted with an "oops, not working" error when they tried using Google’s Malware Review form.

The form that was introduced last year in August to help webmasters solve issues of malware or badware, faced some technical problems this week and this was first reported at around 1 am on May 15th.

According to Search Engine Round Table, this might have been caused because of the fact that www.stopbadware.org, Google’s partner for detecting malware and handling, was also facing technical difficulties and was reporting "500 – Internal Server Error" all through the day.

Googler, John Mu advised webmasters to directly submit the Malware Review forms at StopBadware.org, in case the Google form failed to work. He said, “We went through all the failed requests and submitted them again, but you may want to double-check your sites just to be sure.”

The good news is that the review forms had started working again after about 24 hours and the webmasters probably breathed easy.

A sample of the malware review form is here.
