Google HACKED ?!

Somewhere between my machine and Google [and a whole chunk of domain
names], something in the vicinity of DNS went wrong.  I
don’t know how widely or by whom or since when, but since yesterday
night, I haven’t been able to access any of a wide variety of google
IPs from my machine without an explicit entry in my hosts file. worked, for instance, but,,,,, etc. have not. 
Neither hotmail, aim, gmail…

The annonying thing about maintaining my own hosts entry for google is
that it changes… worked earlier today, but now it
doesn’t.  Right now I’m using, a subtle
difference.  Now google itself works, but if I accidentally follow
a link to, my browser times out unless I actively ping and then insert a new line for it into my hosts file..  What’s going on?  Clearly DNS itself is working, since ping and whois can resolve their IP addresses…
