Fake Fingers Fool Brazilian Biometrics

15th March 2013

Read it.

Real-world staffers create fingers with their own prints, somehow also create a phantom worker and someone then clocks on for both. The fingers, pictured below, don’t look particularly hard to make given silicone is nicely malleable when liquid. The mark on the cloudy cylindrical case at the finger’s base might even be an identifier of some sort, used to make the scam work among multiple scammers.

Still a few bugs in the system.
