CCC | Chaos Computer Club breaks Apple TouchID.

I’ve always loved these guys, but this is just too beautiful. The post is really good and everyone should read it but the punchline is one for the ages:

… It is plain stupid to use something that you can’t change and that you leave everywhere every day as a security token. …

Yeah, wow. Just so true. The fact that these guys even bothered to get out of bed to “hack” this nonsense and post about it astounds me - they really do care and very few others seem to. CCC++.
