Microsoft's search engine Bing will display more detailed warnings when users encounter potential phishing and malware sites.
The company has announced it's refining how it communicates potential threats in Bing results and to website operators using the Bing webmaster dashboard.
Rather than provide only a generic malware warning, Bing's new approach will be more specific about different types of threats and their potential impact.
For end users, it will now highlight whether the page ahead is a phishing site. In such cases, Bing will offer an explanation about how the site might trick the user into disclosing financial, personal, or other sensitive information.
Webmasters are notified through the Bing dashboard and from there can ask for a review of the status after the issue is addressed.
