Re: What Happened To Popular CAPTCHA Solving Tools?

Before the domain expired it would have been easy.

I suspect the way the person figured it out was that they used a tool
that told them what network connections their local computer had open
(that is a reasonable thing to do when checking for malware), and
spotted the address .

After the domain expires, you might get lucky if you happen to know
what the authoritative nameserver for the domain is, because then you
could ask that server rather than the usual cache and forward method
that distributes the name resolution load. It is very unlikely that
the old authoritative nameserver is going to be updated in anything
like a timely manner, the reason the domain disappears from the net is
that the root nameservers instead start saying that someone else is
the new authoritative source.

i hate to burst your bouble but how long is this little work around
going to last? I mean eventually even this little work around won't
work for you so where does that leave you? Lets hope they make a free
one that both users of IE and firefox can use.
