A German hacking team, Chaos Computer Club, claims to have ‘successfully hacked’ iPhone 5s Touch ID security feature. The Chaos Computer Club reports, “A fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID.”

The Chaos team also claims not to use this ‘unsuitable’ security and avoid such things.

Apple had released iPhone 5s with the added fingerprint security claiming that it is much more secure than any other security feature.

“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 nicknamed Starbug, who performed the critical experiments that led to the successful break of the fingerprint locking system. “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.”
