Bada Bing tickles UK fancies

As if finding Pr0n wasn't easy enough already...

Security for virtualized datacentres

Microsoft's Bing is slowly but surely being rolled out to interweb surfers throughout the world - and those who can already get their sticky hands on the new search engine are finding hardcore porno videos are now just two clicks away.

The Blighty version of the site, which has replaced Redmond’s clunky old Live Search, is now up and running. It launched in the US last week and will eventually wheel its way around the globe by 3 June.

Blogger Loic Le Meur spotted the ease with which users could browse for porn via Bing this morning.

"Now try sex in bing, deactivate safe search and go to video. You are now on a porn site without leaving bing. Amazing," he noted in a Twitter post earlier today.

Indeed, it is extremely easy for anyone to access porn at Bada Bing by simply removing the safe search option from the video section and then entering a fruity word into the so-called "decision engine".
