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.”
