The Simple Machine?s Forum audio Captcha that has been hardened from attack. I have contacted SMF about this flaw and it has been verified. I go into greater detail of how i am able to break this captcha here: Exploit Code: This captcha has been broken before and exploit code is available here: . The fix was to add a randomly generated static. I was able to write code to decipher the audio file using a Fuzzy Logic comparison . The comparison is the Hamming Distance between the original audio file and the damaged one generated by the Captcha. peace
