Comment (by polyclef):

 Cloudflare is using recaptcha.  Recaptcha has been broken for years.

 http://bitland.net/captcha.pdf describes how to defeat captchas in general
 and a prior version of recaptcha in particular.

 Many challenges are overly simple and can be broken with existing tools
 that require no further modification.



 can be solved with tesseract

 Other challenges may require simple processing such as erode/dilate, etc
