How true is it and will this be across the board for all sites that use CAPTCHA?
The article does claim it applies to the technology of CAPTCHA, so on the latter yes. The former is what Vash questioned and that's yet to be seen since there have been no conference presentations nor any academic literature produced for peer review that I know of.
EDIT: I learned something. The 3-D captchas are considered pretty impressive and the extent of use of fonts and lines greatly reduces likelihood of cracking. So, YMMV. Yahoo appears to have been one of the easier ones to hit and the article is mostly about the amount of spam we're going to start seeing from Yahoo. yea.

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
