Chaos Computer Club is the name of the largest organization of hackers in Europe, which demonstrated a new method for copying the unique fingerprints of users. Curiously in their approach is that they can reap these biometric data without the need for direct physical contact. We remind you that so far we’ve seen a variety of technologies that it can be done at the touch of any object with a polished surface, such as glass or smartphone display.

Jan Krisler, which is known by the name “Starbug” used latest Conference Chaos Computer Club in Hamburg, Germany, to show how he was able to copy the fingerprints of the German defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen. The method of hackers allows this to happen at public events with the camera of modern mobile devices such as smartphones. Krisler revealed that the software name VeriFinger is able to be used to create a copy of the footprint of several frames of the thumb of a person.

In the case of Ursula von der Leyen they use the press conference at the end of October to capture images and create a complete model of its footprint. We shall see how this method of Chaos Computer Club will affect more and more popular biometric technology in our mobile gadgets. In any case, is annoying to find that so easy anyone can copy a unique feature like our fingerprints.
