How to remove this bug from Bing Webmaster Tool?

  • Keep in mind this may be a link of some sort on another site. As well, check the IP address. Many bots and hackers spoof user agents. How do you know it really is Bing? Only the IP address will tell you. Cheers!! – closetnoc Sep 2 '16 at 15:57
  • Is that screen shot of folders from Bing Webmaster tools? – Stephen Ostermiller Sep 3 '16 at 10:51

You can use htaccess to send a 410 - gone response, that should help with the Bing tools, and will stop your CMS from even seeing these requests.
