German Hacker Group Says It’s Broken The iPhone’s TouchID Fingerprint Reader – Forbes.

Within just days of the release of the new iPhone 5s, it appreas that hackers have already found a way to break Apples new fingerprint-based biometric security feature, TouchID.

Apple indicates that it is working on fixes to this apparent vulnerability already, but in the meantime, it just goes to show that reliance on new security standards or features must be done cautiously until that system is thoroughly vetted.

Forewarned, fore-armed.
