Already feeling secure about using just your fingerprint to unlock the new iPhone 5S? European hacker association Chaos Computer Club claims it can be circumvented with “easy everyday means.” According to CCC hacker “starbug”, tactics laid out in a how-to from 2004 are all that are required, with just a higher res fake needed to beat the Touch ID reader. The process, as described, requires only a 2400 DPI photograph of someone’s fingerprint which is then laser printed at 1200 DPI and used to create a thin latex sheet that serves as the fake.
