Submission + - Captchas Thwarted By Striptease (msn.com)

BinarySkies writes: "A new virus seems to have popped up which may push Internet scammers to the folds of what most would consider 'questionable tactics'. The virus spawns a "buxom, beautiful blonde" who creatively promises a progressive striptease for every word typed correctly. The catch? Each word is actually a captcha box, presumably from another website. Is this a new way for scammers to stay ahead of security? Seems more like a socially engineered human SETI@Home project."
