Bing’s AI chatbot is the perfect torrent-finding companion
Yep, you've read that right.
- Microsoft's AI-powered Bing can do a lot of complex searches.
- Users spotted that it works to search for torrents, too.
- Microsoft is yet to issue a statement/patch.
Microsoft’s AI-powered Bing search engine can do a lot of things: performing complex layered searches, writing poems, short stories, and codes, building a vacation plan, or even being a companion when you’re feeling lonely.
But to find the right torrent website to download pirated content?
This little oopsie from Microsoft is spotted by u/vitorgrs. After inserting the popular show The Last of Us + torrent with high seeds in the chat box, the smart bot replied with a few suggestions of torrent links effortlessly.
It’s unclear whether Microsoft will patch this to prevent content piracy in the future, but so far, there’s no statement from Microsoft just yet.
What’s all the fuss with Microsoft’s ChatGPT Bing?
AI-powered Bing has been collecting outburst after outburst, but Microsoft doesn’t seem to be phased at all.
Recently, the Redmond-based tech giant even rolled out the mobile app versions for Edge and Skype, available for iOS and Android users. You can speak to it too, as it features a voice command functionality, and even add it to a Skype conversation.
Speaking of privacy, Google and Bing signed an anti-piracy deal to deprecate illegal websites back in 2017. Under the surveillance of the UK government and rights holders Motion Picture Association (MPA) and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), the two search providers signed the deal to delete links that point to copyright sites.
