We all know the Completely Automatic Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA) test as being one of the most annoying forms of security. To prove that you are actually human and not a spambot, you have to enter a random set of letters or numbers into a text field when registering for e-mail accounts, website newsletters, adding a comment to a blog, etc. Half the time the CAPTCHA letters aren’t legible themselves, but that’s another story.
D-Link has decided to roll out CAPTCHA into the software of their router hardware. The CAPTCHA security has been added to the DIR-615, DIR-625, DIR-628, DIR-655, DIR-825, DIR-855, DIR-685, and the DGL-4500. The upgrade for other models can be found from the support.dlink.com website.
