    Regardless if it is security theatre, the fact remains that there are lots of great, free, functional captcha generators out there they could've used instead. The fact that they made their own shitty captcha, rather than just saving time and money and reusing an existing library says more about their security policy than the actual ineffectiveness of the captcha itself.

    Yea, they did sell them a policy, and this shows you why you need to actually read your policies before signing them. Many policies, perhaps even ones you have signed, contain clauses that limit the insurers liability if certain conditions aren't met.
