CAPTCHA schemes still easy to bypass
Security researchers at Stanford University have found that the vast majority of text-based anti-spam tests are easily bypassed. They cracked the CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) mechanisms of several popular web sites.
The researchers tested the query mechanisms of such sites as Google, eBay and Wikipedia. Only Google's CAPTCHA and the reCAPTCHA systems managed to withstand the attacks.
