Captchas and Autochange Password

Postby harris775 » Wed Jan 28, 2015 3:40 pm

I saw in the release notes that the autochange password feature now works for sites with captchas. Isn't this the kind of thing that captchas are supposed to prevent? How do they get around it? Captchas are supposed to be unbreakable by computers.

It means that LastPass will pause to let the user enter the captcha information so that LastPass can proceed with the password change.

For a moment I thought they've solved one of open problems of computer security.
They could have used amazon mechanical turk. :D
