In the past few weeks, Bing rolled out its site safety page, a place where searchers can better understand why Bing is indicating that a site may not be safe to visit.
BSSP ("Bing Site Safety Page") allows users to look at several aspects of a page with a warning, including:
- How often the URL has been scanned, the date the infection was first detected, and the date the infection was most recently detected.
But Bing said it isn't done yet with improvements.
“While having information about a single URL on a site is interesting, it doesn’t allow someone to understand if this was a transient issue (perhaps from a malicious ad) or a wide-spread problem (perhaps from a badly compromised server),” the announcement said.
So in the "near future," additional informationwill be available through BSSP to include:
- The total number of URLs detected as malicious on the site.
- The types of malware found.
- When the site was last scanned and the last date of suspicious activity.
- Warning trigger rate/coverage.
