Microsoft: False Google Chrome ads have been detected in Bing

Microsoft has recently removed some bogus ads Google Chrome in the Bing Browser that could potentially contain malware.

The issue was brought to light by programmer Gabriel Landau, citing Microsoft last week. In fact, looking for Google Chrome at Bing fell on ads that led to malicious websites.

One of the links he pointed out was googleonline2018.com, which Microsoft Edge and Bing were the only ones who did not mark him as dangerous. Google Chrome, by contrast, has blocked access to the site by alerting users of the potential dangers of accessing the site.

Bing

So, after this report, Microsoft has removed the malicious advertisements while asking users to continue reporting such content to provide a safer search experience.

As expected, many are those who blame Microsoft for deliberately forcing Google Chrome to advertise its own browser.

Although this theory is unlikely, the microsoft has used controversial tactics in the past to convince users to try the Edge Browser, including the pop-up windows that appeared on the desktop.

At this time, you can continue to use Bing and Edge but we would recommend that you keep an eye on which links you click on the search results page.
