Does Bing Have A Security Problem?
Are some search engines safer than others? It would appear so, according to new data from Web security firm Sophos. In recent weeks, 65% of malicious search results that its Web appliance blocked
were from Bing, while Google was responsible for far less -- 30% -- of the blocked redirects. “Image search is particularly vulnerable to this kind of attack,” Search Engine Land notes,
citing Sophos’ reports. In fact, Sophos reports that 92% of the malicious redirects that it found were in image search results.
