Galaxy S10 fooled by user's 3D printed fingerprint

"The user took a picture of his fingerprint on a wineglass, processed it in Photoshop, and made a model using 3ds Max that allowed him to extrude the lines in the picture into a 3D version".

Samsung announced last month that it is aiming to issue updates to the Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint sensor to improve its functionality after numerous reliability complaints. Still, this just goes to show that everything can be fooled, and if you're thinking your phone is secure with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, maybe think again, and wipe your fingerprints off of every surface you touch.

Khalilzad 'Appreciates' Pakistan's Efforts For Afghan Peace
A meeting between his team and a Taliban delegation was expected in Doha around the weekend, but apparently that has been delayed. The premier also said he had canceled a scheduled meeting with Taliban leaders because of objections by the Afghan government.

Now armed with a 3D-printed fingerprint, he simply placed it over the virtual sensor on the Galaxy S10's screen and got into the handset with no trouble. It is not hard to make such a resin fingerprint method.

This brings up a lot of ethics questions and concerns.

He said that now that he's figured out the printing process, he could steal someone's fingerprint and get it printed and ready to use within three minutes. Most banking apps only require fingerprint authentication so I could have all of your info and spend your money in less than 15 minutes if your phone is secured by fingerprint alone.
