“No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA” doesn’t stop bots

In December Google introduced their new system, claiming to be more robust to bots. But their new system is like you don’t anything on your site.

Their new anti-bot system works simple. The first time you visit a page (see here an example), you will be asked to write something. The next time and because you already proved that you are not a bot, you don’t have to write anything, because reCAPTCHA stored a cookie into your PC, that “tells” Google that you are a human. If you delete this cookie, you have to repeat the process.

When i turned to the new version of reCaptcha, the bots started to register fast.

The problem is that what Google does with the cookies, can be done from the bots, too, as Homakov says. Homakov uploaded an html code that shows us how easy is to bypass the new version of reCAPTCHA.
