Captcha images, the how and why of protecting Personal Information at websites requiring it from you. Protection from the problem of Computer vs Human. This research attempts to discuss the use and show sufficient images from real sites to give everyone a quick but thorough insight to the problems, issues, and security measures while using Captcha Images. If this generates sufficient request I will gladly provide an additional Captcha Review and add it to my list here.

These are the first samples of the
Word Verification
Image that frequentwebsites and are used to verify, to some extent, that the person giving theinformation is a ‘
Thinking, Reasoning, Adult 
’. It becomes a
Comparison Analysis
between a graphic image of, usually
Letters
, but in this case are
Mixed Alphanumeric Symbols
. It is becoming ever increasingly more difficultas the images are often Distorted, Crowded, and nearly Impossible toUnderstand. You are prompted that if you can not cipher the image, you must Right-Click on the Image and it will magically change into another equally misshapen mess.The samples above are, by NO MEANS, true examples of the really Weird Ones. Iam on a quest to collect ‘working samples‘ of this madness and try to create agame out of it to sooth my nerves.
The Process:
 1) Fill in ALL of the REQUIRES(
*
red starred) Information.2) Approach the Word Verification Image and if you have done everythingcorrectly, to this point, the cursor will be blinking in a BOX.3) You should now see a simple statement, to the effect that you must,
Typethe Characters you see in the Image
.4) Next to the Word Verification Image should be a statement that sayssomething like:
Reload Image
. If you can’t understand the first image Right-Click on this underscored two
words
and you get another chance. I supposethere is no limit as to how many times you can try. The first time I had aproblem, I tried 56 times before I got one right and they did not repeatthemselves once.5) If do a ‘
Properties 
’ inspection of the
Reload Image
you will see that it is asimple general button. It has a Number
361186#
and says ‘
Hypertext Transfer Protoco 
l’ along with an address: http://…/signup/?Then comes an URL line that reads: Refer=http://…/photo/361186#.(Hmmm…wonder where they got that number)?6) The final step is to
Left-Click 
on the
SUBMIT
Button. It may also say
Register
…Whatever word is used it all means the same: You have answered allof the proper questions and typed in your interpretation of the Image.7) If you have answered correctly you will be welcomed into the inter sanctumof the website that you are seeking admittance.The following samples have been ripped from sites that I decided I wanted tobecome a member. As you will see, some of them are much harder than others.I sense that it becomes harder and more frustration as you encounter sites thatwant to keep the ‘unwanted away’, whatever that means and however they think 
 
 
this will do the ‘weeding’.
