Hackers crack Gmail CAPTCHA

Posted on Sunday, March 16 2008 @ 05:25:24 CET by


Security firm Message Labs reports crackers managed to break the CAPTCHA of Google's Gmail service. The success rate is somewhere between 20-30%, that's not perfect but more than enough to create loads and loads of e-mail accounts to flood your inboxes.
Security firm Message Labs today said that there is a lot more spam from Gmail accounts coming your way – which is a result of hackers having cracked Google’s CAPTCHA identity verification tool. MessageLabs claims that the breaking rate of the CAPTCHAs is somewhere between 20 and 30%, which is good (or bad, depending on your view) enough to create lots of new accounts to flood your email inbox. The proportion of spam originating from Google accounts has doubled in February, climbing from 1.3% in January to 2.6% in February.
