    A well-known group of hackers already have breached the TouchID security system of the new iPhone 5S on the day its premieres.

    On the day the iPhone 5S was released boasting the new TouchID fingerprint scanning technology, hackers in Germany’s Chaos Computer Club already cracked the code.   They successfully unlocked a 5S after creating a “fake finger” latex mold from a photograph of a fingerprint.  Senator Al Franken, who is an opponent of fingerprint biometrics, says this proves “it is plain stupid to use something that you can’t change and that you leave everywhere every day as a security token.”
