A little ingenuity paired with changes to ReCaptcha’s audio challenge allowed this hacker to create a Python ‘robot’ that defeats the ‘not a robot’ test with 90% accuracy. The approach is brilliant:
- Navigate to Google’s ReCaptcha Demo site
- Navigate to audio challenge for ReCaptcha
- Download audio challenge
- Submit audio challenge to Speech To Text
- Parse response and type answer
- Press submit and check if successful
The code is small enough to grok in 5-10 minutes. Love it!
