  • Bing, Microsoft's search engine, was surfacing child pornography, TechCrunch reports.
  • A report from online safety consultancy AntiToxin, commissioned by TechCrunch, found that several image searches using terms referring to children and pornography turned up explicit photos of clearly under-aged children.
  • Microsoft told TechCrunch it has removed these illegal images, and is working to block such search results in the future — though AntiToxin says that it found that some searches still showed the illegal images in question, even after the report was published.
  • Other social platforms have also had issues with rampant child porn, notably including Facebook's WhatsApp.

Microsoft's Bing search engine appears to have had a problem with child pornography.

TechCrunch reports that several queries on Bing returned child pornography for searches — even on seemingly-innocent search terms, suggested by Bing itself, related to the popular "Omegle kids" app. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
