How to break CAPTCHAs? .. use people!

Few days ago I’ve read an interesting article of how spammers break the CAPATCHA technique that isused widely to stop them. Apparently they use “naive” users to do so!
They would ask Internet users surfing some sites over the web to help tracking down the CAPTCHA code!
And they would use some attractive methods to motivate users, and it seems that it’s working quite well!

It’s worth mentioning here thatBruce Schneier has expected spammers to do so long time ago!
I think that such technique is much more reliable than using automatedCAPTCHAs decoders!
