Captcha 22?

That captcha looks like it would be great for keeping color blind people from accessing your website.

captcha's suck , TFA calls them fun but they are just annoying and if its too hard to read I stop caring about whatever it was behind the captcha wall and move on.

The article mentioned that some bots have solved CAPTCHA systems, but the article didn't go into more details.

Is it true? I can't fathom how someone could program a bot to solve for CAPTCHA.

Speaking of websites with impossible inputs, I see that http://www.romneytaxplan.com is still active.

It's a Seurat. Or at least a small part of one.

Yeah, it's been done. I use one to bypass captchas on download sites. Russian hacker made it years ago.
Think it is still available at http://www.dimonius.ru or here http://cap-cap.ru

I've seen a few that have characters that you can't input on a standard keyboard thrown in. Currency symbols from other nations, Greek symbols, etc. All on American English websites that I presume are used by people who use standard keyboards.

And after you submit, it takes you to a new paint captcha to try

Yeah....it's already going to a dark place with the internet.

I had one come up with calculus equations once. I should have screencapped that B.S.

Google has been developing OCR for books they're scanning, there wsa an article that came out a year or two ago that talked about how their own OCR software could defeat their CAPTCHAs at a surprisingly high rate.

[quick google search]

// also, some people use compromised computers/browsers to gather collections of solved CAPTCHAs from popular sites.

// Randomizing the alterations won't help because you will likely generate too many that aren't guessable to humans.

^ oops, that article is about their street view algorithm which has an even higher rate

// random google search for 'google' and 'captcha'

In regular captcha we are being used as slaves to digitize books. Fifteen seconds per captcha times millions of us doing them equals a heck of lot of human slave power. Usually the same captcha is sent out several times with one known word and one unknown word. If you get the known word right you pass, then the unknown word is compaired with other responces for a match to be acceptably correctly digitized. That is how come sometimes we are hit with an unknown word that is a calculus equasion, or foreign word, or unrecognizable symbol. All in all; millions of hours of of human computation captured for free.

I could only read part of this article because of some annoying ad-bar popped-up and crashed my Droid browser. So I have no farking idea what I wasn't supposed to not look at in "mixed company".

Yup, it's the steal half a penny trick. I intentionally get the second word wrong.

Of course then there is Xerox "THE synonym for exact duplicates" changing numbers.

Yeah, I came looking for the "penis sex" captcha, and left disappointed.

I suppose that could happen if 'penis' was unanimous. I'm not sure how exactly the penis algorithm works; but just one vagina would probably fark it up.
