Submission + - Spammers use stripper to get email accounts

W33dz writes: It appears that our wanton desire for naked boobies has been harnessed yet again. Spammers have created a Windows game which shows a woman in a state of undress when people correctly type in text shown in an accompanying image. The catch is that accompanying image comes directly from a CAPTCHAS query on a different website. As soon as the human horndogs answer the query, the spammers get a new email address to blast more smut.
I'm all for some good smut now and then, and I have to admit that this is pretty darn clever.
