IPhone 5s Fingerprint Sensor Hacked
The IPhone 5’s fingerprint sensor was successfully hacked by a group in Germany just days after its debut..
According to the telegraph.co.uk:
The group, known as the Chaos Computer Club (CCC), demonstrated that a fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID.
A spokesman for the CCC, Frank Rieger, warns that people should not believe the security claims of the biometrics industry:
“Biometrics is fundamentally a technology designed for oppression and control, not for securing everyday device access.”
Personally, I don’t like this technology.
