Within 24 hours of Snapchat releasing an improved security feature, a developer has written a computer program capable of cracking it.
Another hacker, 'Steven Hickson' took only 30 minutes to write a script that can crack this new security feature. In this CAPTCHA feature, basically have you choose from amongst a bunch of images, identifying the ones that have the Snapchat ghost to prove you are a person.
"The problem with this is that the Snapchat ghost is very particular. You could even call it a template. For those of you familiar with template matching (what they are asking you to do to verify your humanity), it is one of the easier tasks in computer vision."
He has also published the source code of cracker on the GitHub.
