The below thread reminds me of an automated CAPTCHA solver many of us
used to use. Anyone still able to get Webvisum to reliably solve visual
CAPTCHA challenges?

According to the below a developer active on the Orca list is going to try
and get it certified for current Firefox.

So, how come we didn't even remember to mention it in our paper? It
never even came up in discussion, afaik.

Would it be traitorous to mention it? I suspect it belongs there, in
among all the tools that can crack visual CAPTCHA.

Thoughts?
