I reported a few days ago that Google Image search result leads to BlackHole Exploit kit v2.0 page. Now, Bing Image search results also leads to malicious sites.

A quick image search in Bing for the keyword 'movie outline example' results rogue images that leads to malicious websites. The attackers use BlackHat SEO to poison the search results.

Blackhat SEO, also known as malicious SEO poisoning, occurs when hackers manipulate search engine results to make their links appear higher than legitimate results. As a user searches for related terms, the infected links appear near the top of the search results, generating a greater number of clicks to malicious websites.

According to Sophos report, Bing search results are being poisoned more than other search engines(65%). 

"Digging further into the data, it is also clear that the attackers are getting most success from poisoning image search results." Researcher said.

When i clicked one of the rogue image, i was redirected to a malicious site "zaka.uni.**" that hosts the latest version of BlackHole Exploit kit(v2.0).

'zaka' , the same keyword is used in the malicious domain used in Google Image result attack. It seems like same group is poisoning Bing search result also.
