Rapidshare Insane Captcha

Most of us know that Rapidshare (RS) is one of the most popular file host and most people prefer RS to share their files. For the downloaders, you may download any of the file in RS for free if you know the link, however you need to wait for your download ticket being reserved plus typing in the captcha image properly. So much step isn’t it? If you want easier way to download from RS, you can find some software able to download files from RS without any of those restrictions, they bypass the captcha with lots of technique such as OCR. To avoid this, RS changed their font type for text in the captcha every month or less, but now they also have increased the security level of their captcha image. The latest captcha used by RS is INSANE for me, it is too hard to recognize the text. Some of the criteria of the latest RS captcha are:

  • Texts are skewed to the right or left, sometimes even not on a straight line
  • Random in the number of letters; sometimes five, up to eight letters
  • Only required to enter letters with the simbol of a “cat” at the letter
  • The simbol of the “cat” can be rotated or even skewed

Take a look at the images below to see some of the captcha I have encountered. Can you catch the cat???

What is CAPTCHA?

A CAPTCHA is a program that can generate and grade tests that humans can pass but current computer programs cannot. For example, humans can read distorted text as the one shown above, but current computer programs can’t.
