SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Yahoo inadvertently gave porn a boost for a few hours Wednesday because no matter what search words surfers typed in Yahoo Images, the queried result came up with the same carnal scene of a man and woman getting it on.

Yahoo hasn't disclosed the glitch that set things off, but the search firm offered a statement: "Yahoo is experiencing issues with some of our image search results.

"We are working with Microsoft to correct the issue as quickly as possible. We understand that this may have caused some inconvenience and apologize to users who have been affected."
