D-Link adds CAPTCHA to Routers to fight against security attacks

D-Link has integrated CAPTCHA - a system, designed to detect whether responses are human or computer-generated - into its popular home and small office routers as an extra safety measure. Which now require users to complete a CAPTCHA test (you know, those “type in the letters you see in this box” type tests) whenever any settings are changed. In the short term, this may well knock out Windows Home Server’s automatic configuration capabilities for D-Link’s routers, which will suck, but I’m sure it’s done with good intentions. D-Link models that now feature CAPTCHA include: DIR-615, DIR-625, DIR-628, DIR-655, DIR-825, DIR-855, DIR-685, and DGL-4500. To upgrade routers with CAPTCHA, customers need to visit support.dlink.com to download the upgrade.
