Drive By Downloads – How Bing Helps Prevent Them

As you are probably already aware, I recently shot a number of video interviews with various people involved in Microsoft’s security efforts.  One of the interviews I thought was pretty interesting is the chat I had with Christian Seifert.  Christian works on the Bing team as a Research Software Engineer.  He and the Bing team do some fascinating work to prevent “drive-by downloads” of malware and other nefarious software.

I did of course ask Christian how we eradicate drive-by downloads from the planet.  He was a good sport and had a very good answer to that question.
