The "wardrobe malfunction" that exposed singer Janet Jackson's breast on live television during the Super Bowl halftime has generated more Internet traffic than the September 11 terror attacks, a survey showed Wednesday.

"Janet Jackson exposing her breast during the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday night has proved to be the most-searched event in the history of the Internet," Terra Lycos said in a survey of top Internet searches.

"On Monday, Janet Jackson and the halftime show received 60 times as many searches as the Paris Hilton sex tape and 80 times as many searches as Britney Spears," said survey chief Aaron Schatz of the Internet portal Terra Lycos.

Schatz noted that prior to this week, the most-searched event in the history of "The Lycos 50" survey over a one-day period was the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks

"Jackson's halftime exposure also far surpasses the other top stories we've tracked on The Lycos 50. Over the course of one day, it received three times as many searches as the 2000 Election.

"It also received four times as many searches as the Iraq War on the day that Al-Jazeera broadcast video of American prisoners of war, and received five times as many searches as the day the Space Shuttle Columbia exploded," said Schatz.
