Melissa stripping for spammer!

A proof that someone will raise to any challenge I guess. You've probably encountered Captchas, Completely Automated Public Turin test to tell Computer and Human Apart, you know these bits of text graphics that are garbled and almost unreadable you encounter when signing up to some stuff and when posting comments on blogs for example. Well those things are almost impossible to decipher automatically by computer making them a very effective anti-spam system. But some people have found a way to exploit the weakness in the system: human. By way of a malware a message appear on a the screen about a girl which ask you to play a striptease game: if you can guess the characters written on the screen she takes a pieces of clothes off. Where it becomes inters ting is that the characters you are asked to guess are the Captchas of an account trying to be set up for spam. While it does not enable computer to beat the Captchas technically it is still a ingenious workaround. It is also further proof that you should question the motive or random girl asking to strip for you...

Is it a photograph of a woman or just a cartoon? It's hilarious already but if it's a cartoon woman, then it's waaay hilarious-er.

I don't know but it's probably a real picture. But you are right a cartoon would be much funnier.

This is one of the best idea I've heard about in the last few years!!!

Sex IS the way to get people do amazing things. And bypassing programs with sex... wow... so ingenuous...

And you have NO idea how much even cartoon sex can make people do things. Just play any MMORPG...
