Last century called and they want their vuln back

from here

I kid you not, I was holding up photos in front of face recognition cameras 20 years ago, and I'm pretty sure I wasn't the first person to think of it. This recent finding may have a novel way of presenting the captured image to the system, but it's still just feeding a captured image to the system. Since the only real tricky bit was the fact that the system required an infrared image, I suspect a photo printed with infrared ink might have done the trick without needing to rely on any camera funny-business.

20 years and face rec is still being bypassed in fundamentally the same way. Is it any wonder I have no faith in biometrics?
