Researchers warn of fingerprint theft from ‘peace’ sign
Whoops. We already knew that fingerprint mechanisms are easy to circumvent due to their design. However, with high-quality cameras on most smartphones, researchers now warn that your fingerprint could get stolen when you flash a ‘peace’ sign in a photo. This type of attack is pretty similar to what the speaker Ursel presented at a Chaos Computer Club event in 2014 about iris scan theft from photos.
