[Solved] Cannot Open Gmail, Orkut With Open DNS Servers Configured

Recently I faced a strange problem on my desktop computer when I could not open orkut and gmail in my computer internet browsers like firefox, google chrome etc. When ever I tried opening orkut or gmail I faced the following error page with the error message as shown in the image below.

As it seems may be due to the long URL redirection URL to the profile home page generated after logging in orkut confused the open dns servers to consider it as a phishing website and its gets blocked, some thing similar happened with gmail also.

After some searching, I got to know that the best way to solve this problem is to get rid of open dns servers and rather use google dns servers for faster browsing and better web experience. So, I changed the dns servers on my router from open dns to google dns servers.
