Advanced Captchas

I have been building my personal site list ever since I started using GSA. I use several of the GSA products and have always been very happy with the software and the service. However, over the past few months my site list has been cut in half because so many sites are adopting the new generation of captchas (links below). CB isn't able to break them even with a captcha service as a backup. My guess this is because clicking in the Captcha is required.

This is going to become an bigger problem over time. Are there any plans to address this problem? I don't use xrummer but I don't think they can break these yet either. I think this because I subscribe to an OCR service that I am pretty sure is using xrummer has their backend and they cannot break these either.

    To be honest I haven't seen many site using the new recaptcha type yet...solvemedia is also not that often used. But indeed it can become a problem in the future. Just that right now I see no point wasting too much time on this. It would be not that trivial anyway.

    Are you sure @Sven ?

    Seems like Bravenet for instance has taken steps already:

    Yea of course there are sites using this, but not that many.
  • Considering the number of sites that aren't using these captcha types it's no really an issue atm. But who knows if more sites start to make the switch going forward. It's definitely a "tomorrow" problem.

    Guess the 'tomorrow' is now. See more and more sites with this kind of captcha. especially solvemedia.
    Is there any progress in solving these?
    Uploaded a sample here with 178 images (with answers):

    Tried to bruteforce it, but won't get even 1%.
    Maybe someone has a idea.

    Thanks for the captchas @RoqueNE. However almost every captcha is not solved correctly. As you see it's even hard to solve them by humans. There is nothing a AI can do here if we humans also fail.
