Captcha issue

Hi all,

I'm writting an IM app with python. I got to the point where I could login, get a session id. But after awhile I got the CaptchaRequire error.

'Error': 'CaptchaRequired\nErrorDescription=Captcha is required\nCaptchaUrl=http://ab.login.yahoo.com/img/sHZv0uJZFemYHnVu.6VOnzQDE0bSQ14yYJ7O.Pc.TZTiJMUfiyxTOEHB7lmU1ZY0NuucJATGeb6sNp5Z

How can I fix this?

Curiously, copy-pasting the url into a browser works (got a RequestToken), but doing a urllib.urlopen() in python produces the captcha error. (https://login.yahoo.com/WSLogin/V1/get_auth_token&login=my_login&passwd=my_pwd&oauth_consumer_key=my_key)

Thanks!!

  • Did you use same computer for your program and browser? The captcha was there because you reach maximum invalid login/authentication.
    You should use another account on your code.
