Hackers Break Apple’s Biometric Security TouchID

According to an article published by the Chaos Computer Club¬†popularly called CCC, a¬†group of its hackers have successfully broken the much touted Fingerprint scanner by Apple called TouchID. This feature is included in it’s latest iPhone 5s series and was advertised as highly secure and extremely difficult to break into. However, in the video evidence provided by the CCC, they have made use of the day-to-day available resources to break the biometric security of the latest iPhone.

According to the hacker who goes with the nick name of Starbug and who was instrumental in breaking this, Apple has used a higher resolution of the fingerprint scanner compared to the sensors currently available and once they were able to match this, manipulating the same was easy.
