    This seems like a dubious conclusion that two thirds of bad URLs are on Bing. Sohpos is detecting bad urls that appear in Bing, but perhaps there are also lots of bad urls on Google, but Sophos just isn’t detecting them. This could happen if Google is better at listing new urls, such as new urls created by botnets to spread malware.

    Any security strategy that relies on lists of known threats is pretty much doomed to fail. Current malware technology generates new urls on the fly, so by the time something is blacklisted it’s old news. The attacks being launched today are using new urls that haven’t been seen before. Apparently Sophos is catching yesterday’s attacks, which is a lot better than what Bing can do, and somewhat better than Google. This news isn’t reassuring for either search engine.

    In my view the gold standard for threat detection is Damballa. They recently identified heavy click fraud activity targeting Facebook, Doubleclick, YouTube, Yahoo, MSN and Google. So, singling out Bing may be unfair and may be deflecting attention from the real problem.

    Having used both Google and Bing, I have to respectfully totally disagree with Sophos.
    I get way more “malicious results” with Google than with Bing.
    No contest.
