Microsoft Bing included potential illegal content in their IOS mobile App.
December 9, 2016
I have been back and forth on releasing this finding.
To limit the risk for harm in releasing this information; I have allowed 10 months since sharing with Microsoft with the hopes that most users have upgraded and replace their version of Microsoft Bing from their devices.
I shared with Microsoft I intended to release this information they had asked me to allow them to review before releasing: "Can you provide us a copy of the article you intend to publish so we can review?"
To let them edit or review the content felt inauthentic, so I have went forward and shared with no ill will towards Microsoft and with the intention of a safer happier world for all :)
I can see that unfortunately if nothing is shared it might allow:
a) A legal precedent for humans to argue that the content of their web history is not theirs, but the device history came that way from Microsoft Bing.
b) Allow prosecution of other humans in parts of the world blaming them for the content Microsoft has placed in their Bing App which resides on their devices.
Search term contents categories that are questionable:
1) Zoophilia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoophilia_and_the_law) not legal in Turkey, the United Kingdom, NZ, Some States in the USA. And not kind to Animals in the first place.
2) Child Pornography.
In either case, harm will be done.
Those who need help will not be helped, and further harm is likely to occur to those on are planet which is not needed.
Firstly I would like to say, Microsoft was quick to take action to remove the content within days of my security report. Accidents happen, and I believe this was just a case of human error which we are all guilty of at some point in life :)

I am hoping that all data is random, and not a real world Troll Trace, but it looks to include full users Latitude and Longitude, which I have redacted them here in my report.
