Captcha.

2 posts in this topic

*Hope the contains of this thread is not considered offensive to the mods/admins, if so please delete this thread at well. sorry in advance if so.

Captcha According to Wikipedia.org means: completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart", trademarked by Carnegie Mellon University) is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human.

I am pretty sure most of you have encountered one of these before, either from browser games or email/forum sign ups. :D

Here is my question, is there anyways to fufill the Captacha system with a program? meaning is it possible to write a program (lets say in auto it :P ) so the fill in the blank processes can be automated such as a bot for browser games. Examples would be kings of Choas, Dark Thrones etc [just examples i dont play any of the browser games, used to, not anymore]. The reason for this question is that recently i got a program which does an automation for me [going to the web site, enter the text and download requested file], and it had successfully passed the system. I got curious and check out the program folder and found only thing it there related to it was a temp image that contains the original generated Captcha image, this puzzles me and i have no way of figuring it out how the programmer did it. So im here to ask you guys for help. :D

I did some research in google. Some of the common used method are either by using an optical text recognition program[basically means a programs that look at the image and try to figure out the best match that fits teh text] or an dirty alternative of exploiting human weakness.. feeding the challenge to a porn site asking users for input before the "goods". However, i dont think either methods are very reliable (well besides the second one)....and there must be a better way to do this task. I am just trouble by it, and i want to figure it out.

Thanks in advance for any reply.

If you are asking about creating an app that can (hopefully) tell humans and automation programs apart, yep!

I saw one once - everytime I ran the program, there was something different it asked you to select.

the app had 3 buttons labeled 1, 2, and 3.

Sample Requests (making some of these up along the way):

Click button 2.

Click the button that is in the middle

Select the button 3 buttons to the right of the button that is 1 button to the left of button 2.

Button 3 from the right.

Button 1 from the left of button 3.

2 Buttons away from button 3.

Button 3 is 2 buttons away from it.

Click the button with the number 1 on it. Do not click button 3.

Do the opposite of the following 2 statements. Click button 3. Don't click button 2.

Button 2 is cool! Click the one with the number 3 instead.

1 is a nice number, 2 is the one to click, 3 is forbidden!

The button is 2 buttons away from the button that is 2 buttons away from Button 1.

And so on...
