A solution to the CAPTCHA problem? Probably not. "Are You A Human' CAPTCHA Game Brings Fun To Web Security" http://j.mp/KIMZBd (Huffington) "The "Are You A Human" CAPTCHA asks you to select the pepperoni with your mouse and drag it onto the pizza. By dropping the animated toppings onto the virtual pie, you've shown that you're a human. Access granted: You're into the site, no text CAPTCHA necessary." - - - Now, before you think to yourself that the "solution" discussed in this article has general applicability, it's worthwhile to keep in mind that increasingly, mass solving of CAPTCHAs is already being done by humans, being paid pennies each in large numbers to solve CAPTCHAs in real time. There is no reason to believe they will be any less effective at subverting the technique described here. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
