    @phpcian236: please stop asking if a feature has been done. Normally, when it's done, the feature request is marked as such.

    Anyway, you can have a look by yourself to see if it has been done.

    I just added pull request https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/pull/298, which contains open-source library that uses PHP GD to create captcha and verifies it.

    To activate it we need to have this in the conf file:
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['captchaLogin'] = true;

    The end result should be something similar to the image attached. I don't know where should I put the library so for now is it in the root folder.

    I would like to hear some feedback, thanks.
