  • An Apple iPad is used in Las Vegas

Just days after the iPhone X hit stores on November 3, Vietnamese cybersecurity company Bkav claims a $150 3D-printed mask bypassed the new Face ID, which is used to unlock the Apple device. The mask was made from a combination of 2D, images, 3D printing and some makeup and it apparently cost around $150 to make. The parts such as eyes are 2D images.

'With Face ID's being beaten by our mask, FBI, CIA, country leaders, leaders of major corporations, ect. are the ones that need to know about the issue, because their devices are worth illegal unlock attempts. Each capture hones the AI's ability to distinguish the owner from an imposter.

The firm hit out at Apple, saying it "has done this not so well" and claiming their video shows "they haven't carried out scientific and serious estimation before deciding to replace Touch ID with Face ID".

FBI data shows 18 hate crimes logged in South Dakota in 2016
In a statement addressing the report Monday, the Anti-Defamation League focused on the overall increase in reported hate crimes. Federal Bureau of Investigation data show hate crimes increased across the country from 5,850 in 2015 to 6,121 crimes in 2016.

Apple's revolutionary new Face ID technology can be hacked.

Bkav wrote in its blog post that the Face ID is "not an effective security measure" because it can be "fooled by mask".

The brand new iPhone did not recognize the mask but just the face of a team member. Bkav did not respond to a request to further explain its methodologies.

USDA surprised many with the crop production forecast out this month estimating a two percent increase from last month for corn . But an estimated 2.14 million acres will be run through the combines in 2017-breaking the previous record set a year ago .

The firm doesn't say how many false starts were encountered before a mask that unlocks it in a single try was created. Apple says the chance of a person unlocking your phone with Face ID is 1 in a million.

The firm is launching its own facial recognition technology named ZoOm Login which provides ultra-secure face authentication by matching the user via recognition algorithms and verifying 3D liveness via AI. "This seems like an unlikely sequence of events".

Apple has been pioneering new ways for customers to unlock their phones for years, from passcodes to fingerprint locks, combining both convenience and safety. Is your data so valuable that someone would go to this effort? Exploitation is hard for normal users, but simple for professional ones, ' they added.

Anh acknowledged that preparing the mask wasn't easy, but he said he believed the demonstration showed facial recognition as a way to authenticate users would be risky for some. Apple's facial recognition begins with the opening assumption that the user gazing at the screen is likely to be the correct user.
