Gotcha, CAPTCHA! Gmail bot detector system cracked

News from Ars:

The Gmail CAPTCHA has been cracked—albeit not easily—raising new concerns about spammers' ability to abuse Google's e-mail services. Websense Security Labs pointed out the security breach late last week, noting that spammers have a lot to gain by being able to use bots to automatically sign up for new accounts.

So, they have cracked the GMail CAPTCHA, with a 20% success rate. What is the world coming to?
