CAPTCHA(Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a test used in computing to distinguish whether or not the user is computer or human. Many web sites mostly use the character-based CAPTCHA consisting of digits and characters. Recently, with the development of OCR technology, simple character-based CAPTCHA are broken quite easily. As an alternative, many web sites add noise to make it harder for recognition. In this paper, we analyzed the most recent
more » ... which incorporates the addition of the natural images to obfuscate the characters. We proposed an efficient method using support vector machine to separate the characters from the background image and use convolutional neural network to recognize each characters. As a result, 368 out of 1000 CAPTCHAs were correctly identified, it was demonstrated that the current CAPTCHA is not safe.
