The arms race escalates between spammers and CAPTCHA - Boing Boing Gadgets

You know those annoying scrambled messages, that you see on forums all over the net, you know, enter desired username, password, and also enter this illegiable, ugly text to make sure your not a robot.

well now the robots can effectivly unscramble this text faster than a human can read it, the CAPTCHA Algoritihms used by Windows live hotmail, and Gmail are official cracked at this point. It seems a single bot can can now amass 1400+ accoutns in a single day of operation. ugh.
