Summary0027157: Update securimage to 4.0.2

When SecurImage's author announced he would no longer maintain the library, he also tagged a new 4.0.2 release from the nextgen branch he had been working on.

Until we identify a replacement for SecurImage (see 0027156), we should in parallel consider upgrading to 4.0.2; since the changelog mentions increased captcha difficulty and several other fixes and improvements, if there are no regressions it may be worth the effort.

TagsNo tags attached.

After analysis and testing, it turns out the library's behavior in the 4.x branch has changed quite a bit compared to the version we're currently using, and some non-trivial changes would be required for Mantis to use it.

Considering that securimage is end-of-life, it is not worth the effort to upgrade.
