Smoothwall can no longer filter Bing image search
A couple of weeks ago I noticed that inappropriate images in Bing image search were once again making their way through our Smoothwall, and after raising a ticket I have now had it confirmed that due to changes in Bing, deep URL filtering no longer works.
There is also apparently nothing that Smoothwall can do to work around the problem.
This means we are once again completely at the mercy of Bing's own safesearch, which is terrible compared to Google's. Please ensure your staff are aware of this, as you may find many people will be using Bing for image search due to it being the default search engine in IE (unless you've changed it).
