Problem with Google's Reputation Server?

We received a report this morning (Thanks Rob) asking if we've heard about any other problems with Google's reputation server.  Apparently starting this morning at ~8:30 EST, Firefox started reporting a number of "clean" sites as attack sites.  

Since Firefox gets this reputation information from Google, Rob writes in asking if we've heard any other reports.

So let's hear from you.  Any other strange activity?

Surely it could be a mistake. I have noted that within the last two years some of the major "clean" sites that have advertising have had the advertising link to infected servers. And a web filtering firewall I care for prevents access to the "clean" site whenever this happens.
