No results found for 'stuxnet'

Is it just me or?

I've tried searching Bing today for 'stuxnet' to learn more about the stuxnet industrial malware and I get "We didn't find any results for stuxnet." And then they show results for 'student' and a few listings for stuxnet. Nothing appears under News.

I tried it in several different browsers. Makes me wonder what else Bing isn't returning results for?

Tell me it's not just me.

I get 3 listings for student, 3 news links for stuxnet, 3 links for stuxnet, then mixed listings for stuxnet and student.

Yahoo also insists I meant student, although gives me a link if I really, really did mean stuxnet.

Google doesn't try to show me any student stuff. I doesn't even try to tell me I'm "wrong" for typing stuxnet.

First 3 results:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuxnet
www.stuxnet.net

All I get is the news block, then the rest are results for [student].

And that's really the strange bit: When typing the term, Bing's auto suggest brings up stuxnet as the top prediction when I get to [stux], but as soon as I add the 'n' [stuxn], all of the predictions are student related.

A bit of a bug in Bing.

I did find if you searched for +stuxnet then normal results seem to appear. Oh well, another small but good reason to keep using Google.
