Daniel,

Hmmm..... I don't think so, but the IP's seem to be different than they were before from a cached WHOIS. IIRC, didn't Google used to be on InterNAP and now they're on Cogent/Verio?

Decide for yourselves.

 Folks reporting the hijack were most likely infected with adware and
being redirected.

 Oops, I didn't mean "infected with adware".  I mean they installed a
"customized search tool bar", or "web query optimizer" for themselves.

 Wasn't Google using Akamai?  Is the "L" in "l.google.com" for
load-balancing?

 From the above link:

"Recap: 6:13PM PST: Google was not hacked, but instead had a DNS
problem. For some the site was redirecting to the SoGoSearch page. All
services have been restored."
