MI­CROSOFT’S Bing search en­gine showed child pornog­ra­phy images, as well as mak­ing sug­ges­tions for other dis­turb­ing search phrases, an in­ves­ti­ga­tion has found.

Re­searchers dis­cov­ered il­le­gal pho­tos of un­der-age boys and girls dis­played on the search en­gine’s im­age re­sults, us­ing sim­ple search terms with the SafeSearch fil­ter switched off.

Search terms for chil­dren and Omegle, a free site for chat­ting to strangers, not only pro­vided in­ap­pro­pri­ate pho­tos of mi­nors but also pre­sented as­so­ci­ated search sug­ges­tions.

Mi­crosoft said it has now re­moved the of­fend­ing con­tent.
