Trend Micro researchers say the scam appears to be isolated for now to
spammers trying to register bogus e-mail addresses and flood chat rooms
with unwanted pitches. But they worry schemes to infiltrate financial
institutions could soon appear. Spammers might be using the results to
write a program to automatically bypass CAPTCHA systems.

Fergie, any samples that you want to share?
