Humans Serving Machines

First, humans tagged online content.

Now, we will read captchas for the machines.

The Captcha Trojan disguises itself as a stripper game that offers voyeurs the chance to see images of a model getting undressed. In order to get "Melissa" to lose an item of clothing, the user must identify the letters or numbers found within a scrambled text image that forms the basis of a captcha (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart). Providing users identify the letters correctly, Melissa shows a bit more skin.
