[!] UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' - /mangle module

Issue #272 duplicate

Hi, Recon-ng team. I'm getting the following error after running the recon/contacts-contacts/mangle module.

[!] UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xd8 in position 79: invalid continuation byte File "/usr/share/recon-ng/recon/core/framework.py", line 190, in to_unicode.

I'm gathering the contacts from the "bing_linkedin_cache" module. BTY... Bing API keys (v5) will not be available starting October 16, 2017 onwards. Which is the cause of an existing module error on line 339 --> /usr/share/recon-ng/recon/core/module.py

Thanks for your help!

    I've seen this one, too. I think it's in the bing_linkedin_cache module, caused by assuming that responses are UTF-8. It's on my list to get that module updated for the new API stuff, too. I'll take a look at this when I do that.
