Bing Leads To Five Times More Malware Than Google

Bing Leads To Five Times More Malware Than Google

A recent study has found that search results from Microsoft’s Bing lead to malware-infected sites at a rate five times higher than searches done on Google.  Put another way, if you use Google for searching the web you are five times less likely to run into a malware-infected site compared to using Bing.

Microsoft, of course, has disputed the results of the study.

ESG recommends using Google for searching and specifically turning on Safe Search in Google.  Give us a call or e-mail if you would like help with Safe Search!

You can read the original, full study here and decide for yourself.
