ISSUE-71: The CAPTCHA note is obsolete; we should update it


The CAPTCHA note is obsolete; we should update it

Raised by:
Matthew May
Opened on:
Matt pointed out that the 'arms race' goes on and the unusability of CAPTCHAs that actually defeat malware attacks has reached the point of failure even for the TAB user.

Discussed on 13 August 2008 with a resolution to start work on a refresh in October 2008, on or around the F2F at the TPAC.

Consult the notes for some people who volunteered to help.
