Striptease award for solving captchas



In September, we saw the outsourcing of software designed to break CAPTCHAs. I knew what CAPTCHAs were but I didn't know it was a acronym: "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart". Anyway, what is the best software to crack these? Yes! The human brain! A clever social engineering design is the next threat we have to deal with. Solve the captcha and get a striptease in return. Full Analysis by Pandalabs.

Hmmm, can you recognise this kind of image? Yes, it’s a captcha (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart) image. Now, look at yourself, you are a human automated captcha reader. If you type the correct interpretation of the image, you are sending the information necessary to break the protection of the targeted site. This attack could be used to create massive mail accounts, for comment posting… for all the services that use captchas to authenticate a person instead of a computer. In this particular case, the captchas were from Yahoo.
