Apple's Touch ID Fingerprint Lock is Broken by Chaos Computer Club

Apple TouchID Fingerprtint Lock

Apple recently launched their 2 smartphones named iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. You can have a look on their specifications and price at here. There is nothing new in this both smartphone. Apple launched them as usual with few hardware upgrades and new iOS that is iOS 7. Every one knows that apple product market is down due to cheap and good feature android phones. This time Apple tried to create their authority in mobile market by launching fingerprint unlock named as "TouchID". Apple claimed it as a most secure and handy security system of iPhone 5S.

But, the sad news is, recently this security lock is hacked and broken by a computer club named as chaos computer club. Apple's new finger touch unlock technology was much more secure than previous generation technology as it scan and creates much high resolution image which contains each and every small details of fingerprint.

But, this can be duplicated by just a fingerprint that we leave on every item we use in our life. To unlock this fingerprint lock called 'Touch ID', you just need to have a  2400 DPI picture of fingerprint on any glass. This later converted in 1200 DPI print on latex sheet, which is used as a duplicate fingerprint.
Chaos Computer Club says,

"In reality, Apple’s sensor has just a higher resolution compared to the sensors so far. So we only needed to ramp up the resolution of our fake”

 said the hacker with the nickname Starbug, who performed the critical experiments that led to the successful circumvention of the fingerprint locking.

“As we have said now for more than years, fingerprints should not be used to secure anything. You leave them everywhere, and it is far too easy to make fake fingers out of lifted prints.”

Have a look on video I have shared below to know how you can break iPhone 5S Touch ID security.

Micromax Canvas 4 : Full Review and Specifications


Micromax canvas 4 is launched recently in the Indian market to beat some of the leading phones by Samsung and HTC. Micromax canvas 4 seems like an elder brother of Micromax canvas 3 (HD), there are no major changes in processor, display and many other features are common. The main things that Micromax have focused on are Software, Camera, Some smart features. Micromax also increased the internal memory of the phone to 16GB and you still have a chance to insert memory card if you like to.

To increase strength and feel of the canvas 4, Micromax added aluminum frame which it a premium look and feel.  Allover rating from me is 8 out of 10, because Micromax is in it's way to build premium products and if we compare their product from Samsung's product it seems much cheaper. But, hey guys we still need to consider the prices that Micromax has decided for the Micromax canvas 4 and that are much lesser than the Samsung's prices.

Now, if we compare Micromax's previous mobile phone which was Canvas 3 HD (A116) and Micromax Canvas 4 (A210), than there is no such a big change in mobile phone specification except camera and memory storage. To just upgrade those both, you need to pay nearly 4000 INR extra money. If you are current Micromax canvas 3 HD user and want to upgrade to canvas 4, I would highly recommend you to wait for few months and go for Micromax canvas 5 when ever it launch.
This was some of my personal words abut Micromax's leading mobile phone Canvas 4. You can see the detailed specification of the Micromax canvas4 in the table given below.

Comment below what you actually think about the Micromax canvas 4, user experience and how it feels in your hands.

Micromax Canvas 3 vs Micromax Canvas 4 : Detailed comparison

Micromax recently launched Micromax canvas 4 (A210), which is an elder brother of Micromax canvas HD  3 (A116). All the specifications except camera performance are same. Just camera performance is increased significantly. We are expecting the upgrade will do lot more with mobile specifications but, Micromax focused more on feel, look, design and software performance of the phone.
I personally think, the value of the price you are paying is not increased that much. Because, with the increment of the price the phone hardware specifications are not increasing that much.
You can have a look on both phone's design and feel in the pictures provided below.
