CAPTCHA Allegedly Broken By New AI

In the war against spammers and other malicious individuals there have been many protections invented. One of these is the CAPTCHA system. This is a system that presents an image that a user must type in to prove they are human. This image is generally not readable by bots as anything other than an image file so it can stop many attempts at spamming. The system is not fool proof and some of the simpler systems have already been hacked through prediction of the codes used to generate the images. Now, it seems like that someone has found a way to actually read the image and input the information.
