iNVEZZ.com Monday, July 29th: Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Bing search engine has introduced pop-up warnings on sites containing images of child abuse. The software maker said on Saturday that UK-based users who attempt to use the engine to search for such material will trigger the Bing Notification Platform message warning, which tells them they are looking for illegal content and provides a link to a counselling service.

The development comes after Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron attacked web companies, accusing them of neglecting a “moral” duty to combat the rise of child abuse online. Analysts have also remarked that Microsoft’s move would build pressure on internet giant Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) to fall in line with other search engines in taking more proactive steps in tackling the issue.
