Yahoo Image Search Bug Showed Sex Images For Innocent Search

by , Comments

Yesterday, on Thanksgiving, The Register reported that a search at Yahoo Images for franchise returned very offensive and disturbing images. I will not describe the images, but I saw them myself and as soon as I saw it, I emailed my contacts at Yahoo. Soon after the images were pulled from the search results. It seems to me that someone figured out a way to easily insert pornographic images into Yahoo images for a search term even with safe search on. The Register has blurred and censored screen captures of the first line of results.
