Google Toolbar hijacks 404 Errors

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Up to the Minute

Following suit of Internet Explorer’s behavior, users of the Google toolbar will now also be redirected when they encounter 404 error pages. Just like with Internet Explorer, the “service” only kicks in if the error page is shorter than 512 bytes. The resulting error page also suggests a Google search, which in turn then is monetized by ads.
