iPhone 6, iPhingered

John Leyden reports that Lookout claims that ‘iPhone 6 STILL vulnerable to TouchID fingerprint hack ONE YEAR LATER‘ referring to the hack previously reported with the 5s.

Gaining access to an iPhone using a faked fingerprint isn’t the easiest trick to pull off, and in any case needs access to the owner’s fingerprints and the phone itself. Still, it’s a good argument for using a passphrase or PIN as a second authentication factor.
