"After this talk, politicians will presumably wear gloves when talking in public," Starbug told the audience at the Chaos Computer Conference (CCC) conference.
However, this is not the very first time when Chao Computer Club has targeted fingerprints. In past, the group has demonstrated how easily the Apple iPhone 5s can be unlocked using a fake fingerprint obtained from an individual who has touched a shiny surface, such as glass or a smartphone screen.
"This demonstrates—again—that fingerprint biometrics is unsuitable as [an] access control method and should be avoided," the group said at the time.
Moreover, just three days after the launch of the Galaxy S5, hackers successfully managed to hack Galaxy S5 Fingerprint sensor using a similar method that was used to spoof the Touch ID sensor on the iPhone 5S.
