Hackers claim to have defeated Apple’s Touch ID print sensor

“A day after the iPhone 5S hit the streets, a group of hackers in Germany said they have bypassed the biometric security on Apple’s new Touch ID fingerprint sensor by using “easy everyday means.  The Chaos Computer Club announced late Saturday that it defeated the security system by photographing an iPhone user’s fingerprint from a glass surface and using that captured image to verify the user’s login credentials. The Touch ID sensor, which resides under the home button of the iPhone 5S, can replace the four-digit passcode to unlock the handset and authorize iTunes Store purchases.”
