http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...ys-hackers-used-photo-fingerprint-access.html I remember an old MythBusters where they were trying to hack a door fingerprinter reader lock. They picked up a basic Microsoft fingerprint reader and proceeded to try to hack it. After some serious time trying, they finally did it and actually cut some of the scene's out so not to show the world how it's done. Anyway, first try on the door lock and it opened. So they went backwards to see how easy it is and finally opened the door with a piece of paper with a fingerprint photocopied on it. As it says in the article:- 'As we have said now for more than years, fingerprints should not be used to secure anything. You leave them everywhere, and it is far too easy to make fake fingers out of lifted prints.'
