Galaxy S8's iris scanner gets 'trivially' bypassed by German hacking group

The iris-recognition feature in Samsung's new Galaxy S8 smartphone has been defeated by German hackers, less than a month after it hit shelves around the world. "Now you can use yours to make purchases with Samsung Pay".

The listing shows the front panel of the smartphone, along with the model number-SM-G892A, while the flat screen could be seen as a disappointment by many, the interesting thing is that the device maintains its expanded screen -to-body ratio as it is in the regular Galaxy S8. The phone will probably also carry forward the shatter-proof glass that the Galaxy S7 Active featured.

The iris scanner wasn't the only biometric security measure the CCC team was able to bypass. Hold the fake iris up to the phone and voila!

Know How to Check @cbse
This year, almost 10.98 lakh candidates appeared for the Class 12 exams out of which 4,60,026 were girls and 6,38,865 were boys. CBSE results have been late after exams were delayed a bit due to the assembly polls held earlier this year.

The artificial eye - which is made using just a printer and a contact lens to match the curvature of the eye - can be created using pictures of the owner's eye taken from social media, the group said, though for highest quality fake irises, a digital photograph taken in night mode works best. Open sesame, unlock phone, unlock Samsung Pay.

So much for Samsung's claims: "We care deeply about your privacy". The company didn't provide any details on the reasoning behind that decision but is presumably looking to avoid hurting the sales of the Galaxy S8 series and not remind American consumers about last year's ordeal.

Do you still have "peace of mind" now about the iris scanner keeping your phone secure?

It might take even more time for carrier-based phones to receive these monthly updates compared to the unlocked variants, but lately, T-Mobile has been doing pretty much well when it comes to rolling out Android security updates to its flagship devices.

In its statement, the CCC notes that the next generation iPhone is also expected to feature iris recognition unlock technology, hinting that it'll attempt to crack that too.
