Samsung Galaxy Iris Hack

Samsung Galaxy S8 iris recognition hack

Hackers of the German Chaos Computer Club (CCC) managed to hack the iris recognition on Samsung Galaxy S8.

While advertised by Samsung as“one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked”, the feature can be bypassed using a simple camera, printer and a lens.  Hackers demonstrated that a camera with a 200mm lens can capture a valid picture of the iris from up to 5 meters (16 feet).
