Submission + - ISS Node 3 Naming Poll Hacked 1

jeroen94704 writes: NASA recently opened up a poll to let the public decide what name the Node 3 module scheduled to be added to the ISS in late 2009. Voters can choose between one of four NASA provided alternatives (With "Serenity" a clear leader), or enter their own suggestion. Now it seems a Pokemon fan decided to hack the contest, as the top voter-provided suggestion is currently "MUDKIP". Since entering a suggestion requires CAPTCHA authentication, this is yet more evidence that all but the most advanced CAPTCHA implementations have been broken, and are nothing but an inconvenience for those wanting to circumvent it.
