Hacking team Bypasses Apple's Touch ID System with copy of original fingerprint

quote:

The Chaos Computer Club claims to be able to bypass Apple's new Touch ID fingerprint sensor with a photo of the original user's fingerprint. The bypass is demonstrated in this short video.

First, the fingerprint of the enroled user is photographed with 2400 dpi resolution. The resulting image is then cleaned up, inverted and laser printed with 1200 dpi onto transparent sheet with a thick toner setting. Finally, pink latex milk or white woodglue is smeared into the pattern created by the toner onto the transparent sheet. After it cures, the thin latex sheet is lifted from the sheet, breathed on to make it a tiny bit moist and then placed onto the sensor to unlock the phone. This process has been used with minor refinements and variations against the vast majority of fingerprint sensors on the market.

James Bond would just kill the person and cut off the finger. Simple.

No one with that capability will come in contact with my phone, especially being in Louisiana.

As they say, most biometric readers can be bypassed this way.

This is a "flaw" in the technology, not the product.

Brace yourselves though, fanboys from both sides are coming.

Yeah, I'm already on the OT record of thinking the whole fingerprint reader thing is kind of dumb and has some obvious issues but this "hack" is not something to be worried about.

Unless somebody is carrying the nuclear codes on their I-phone, I don't think most people would be inclined to make the effort.
