SophosLabs have conducted a study in which they have tested different search engines.
The outcome of this study was that Microsoft’s search engine Bing, was the one that had most poisoning attacks in the search results. In the two weeks they ran their study Bing had 65 % of the infected search results whereas google “only” had 30%.
