Bing to warn consumers about to land on illegal pharmacy sites

The FDA has long been fighting against illegal online pharmacies that may be selling counterfeit drugs, and now the search engine Bing will help out with that effort. It was announced on the Bing blog that the search engine will push to consumers a warning message when they are about to land on a site that the FDA has tagged as fake. An association whose members include Microsoft ($MSFT), Google ($GOOG), PayPal and others has for several years been trying to educate consumers about the dangers of buying drugs online.  Story | More
