Surrendering to Microsoft and Bing Cashback

,----[ Quote ]
| The purpose of my post was to show an 
| implementation problem, not to encourage 
| defrauding Microsoft.  I am surprised they 
| would go through this much trouble to make 
| me take down information that is obvious 
| to anyone reading their documentation. I 
| donât like dealing with lawyers, so Iâve 
| decided to comply with their request.  The 
| post is gone.  I will still write a ânon-
| technicalâ post on all the problems I see 
| with Bing Cashback in the next few days.


Microsoft Tries To Censor Bing Vulnerability

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's bing search engine has a 
| vulnerability with its cash-back 
| promotion, which impacts both merchants 
| and customers. In traditional Microsoft 
| fashion, the company has responded to the 
| author of the breaking bing cashback 
| expoit with a cease & desist letter, 
| rather than by fixing the underlying 
| security problem.



Bing Search Tainted by Pro-Microsoft Results

,----[ Quote ]
| The first of the search results about the Microsoft Word question linked to a
| page about how expensive Manhattan is (Is Microsoft competing with Manhattan
| now?). The top responses to the "Is Microsoft Evil?" question were, get this,
| a link to a New York Times story about whether or not Google is considered
| evil, a link about proxy servers, and a link to a story about Microsoft being
| charitable. Wow.
