A detailed AV-TEST study recently revealed that although search engine operators such as Google and Bing make a lot of effort to avoid doing so, they sometimes deliver websites infected with Trojans and similar malware among their top search results. Other search engines do an even worse job.
 
AV-TEST took 18 months to carry out a study that would confirm its initial suspicion, namely that the best-known search engines Google and Bing are being used to include websites containing malware among the top search results delivered to users. This exploitation of search engines is causing their operators to be tripped up by their very own systems. During its study, the institute investigated over 40 million websites delivered as search engine results.

Oh, no, don't get Bingled! Bing serves you up to 5 times more malware than any other search engine! If you can't trust Bing, how can you trust microsoft for anything? Set Google as home page!

 

EDIT: I just wrote that on Microsoft's facebook page and it got deleted in no more than 10 seconds. Then I wrote it again and the story repeated. What's up, Microsoft, you can attack others, but no one can attack you?

It's funny but truth is that the admins of Google's facebook page would also act similar if you would post anything against Google on their page. :)

Here's Microsoft's response from Bing blog:

 

"AV-TEST’s study doesn't represent the true experience or risk to customers. In other words, the conclusions many have drawn from the study are wrong."

 

:lol:

^ May be because you use CommonSense 2.0 with Bing.

Unfortunately Common Sense isn't so common these days...
