Microsoft Bing: Service Ads Pushing Malware

Bing's AI chatbot reported that the malicious ads and phishing links are distributing malware in Microsoft Bing's Ad system.

It is found that sponsored links or harmful ads are now being served through Microsoft's Bing chat responses.

Jerome Segura, The director of threat intelligence said "Ads can be inserted into a Bing chat conversation in different ways".

In March, Microsoft started to display ads on Bing chat conversations to generate revenue from it. 

The researchers observed that when we asked Bing Chat to download the Advanced IP scanner, it would display a link to download it in the chat section.

According to Malwarebytes, malicious ads appear on certain download links for the " Advanced AI Scanner".
