Until recently, the Bing search engine was still associated with child pornography in search results. The New York Times dozens of pictures of child pornography were found using the Microsoft search engine.
In January, scientists have already stated that Microsoft needs to do more so that child pornography cannot be distributed via Bing, but the technology giant could not completely remove this content from search results.
In addition to Bing, press researchers could also find child pornography through Yahoo and DuckDuckGo. These two search engines are based on Bing.
A Microsoft spokesperson has joined The New York Times please inform us that the algorithm has detected an error and that it is difficult to counteract it because it is a "moving target". In the meantime, images should no longer be found.
The researchers from the newspaper did not look at the pictures themselves, but only collected links that they sent to the Canadian Center for Child Protection. This institute was then able to confirm that it was indeed child pornography.
