If the title of this post sounds awfully spammy, that’s because it is. Someone sent me a link to allbots.info and imagetotext.com today. Both of which are tied together into one system that allows someone to purchase a robot and the human CAPTCHA breaking necessary to create accounts in some of the largest social networking sites out there.
These include MySpace, Hi5, Facebook, Youtube, Gmail, and on and on… This reminds me a lot of XRumer which is also designed for the same purpose, but more for message boards and the like. Making hundreds of accounts, for spamming is getting more commonplace and accessible. Just plunk down your stolen PayPal or Google Checkout IDs and you’re off to the races! CAPTCHAs aren’t working folks - we’re just creating another micro-industry.
