for those who read my earlier article it has been confirmed that Apple’s TouchID fingerprint scanner has been hacked. The site http://www.istouchidhackedyet.com has shown that Apple’s super secure fingerprint sensor IS hack-able!
Starbug of the Chaos Computer Club was the first to demonstrate the hack! Check out the video at the site which also has the list of amazing donations for the winners including thousands of dollars, bottles of wine, iPhones, bitcoins, a free patent application and more!
Incredible to see the hacker community coming together to reward ingenuity!
