Porn sites used for solving CAPTCHAS

About nine month ago I wrote an article about funny CAPTCHAS (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) floating around the web.

As a little remark I pointed out that CAPTCHAS might be a temporary solution against comment spamming, automatic account generation, and so on, but that these might easily be bypassed with some cheap tricks:

But don't think that Captchas will be a permanent solution to comment and forum Spam. You can easily hire a bunch of low-wage workers and let them solve these tasks for you. Or even cheaper: Create a porn or warez site to attract traffic and feed the challenges to clueless humans who want to enter.

It looks like this has become reality now.

I hope that one day users will think about what they're doing... :)
