German group claims to have hacked Apple’s iPhone fingerprint scanner:

That was fast. A group of German hackers claimed to have already cracked the iPhone fingerprint scanner on Sunday, just two days after its initial release. Apple touted the technology available on the new iPhone 5s as being the greatest privacy advancement to date, but that claim has been undercut by how quickly the technology has been bypassed. The hackers showed how simple it is to make fake finger prints from lifted prints, and said they hacked it to illustrate why fingerprints should not be sued to secure anything. Apparently spy movies have taught us nothing. If this technology isn’t as profound or sophisticated as it was thought to be, what does the newest iteration of Apple’s most successful device have that is truly new?
