Oh No Captchas!

Captchas…they may not be secure as you thought they were. Captchas are Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. But now, they’re not that secure anymore, and they won’t stop bugs. . A report from Stanford  University researches invented a way to decode the letter puzzles.  It can decode websites such as Visa, Wikipedia, World of Warcraft, eBay, and more. But it doesn’t work on Google.

But still, this is a complete nightmare for page administrators, as they’re trying just to get humans, and not robots. If you look to the image on the left, you’ll see how these are being decoded.
