Galaxy S5′s fingerprint scanner has already been hacked, PayPal accounts at risk

When it comes to Samsung’s fingerprint scanner technology embedded in the home button on the new Galaxy S5, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that we have spent plenty of time testing it, and we’ve found that it works very well. The bad news, however, is that it has apparently already been hacked, leaving Galaxy S5 owners’ devices and their PayPal accounts at risk.

The story is too old to be commented.

Another reason not bother with these flawed ideas specially on Samsung devices.
