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".

His earlier stint was general counsel and deputy secretary at the department in the George W Bush administration. He said Azar, whose own Twitter feed is private, would be "a star for better healthcare and lower drug prices".

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.

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.

Air Traffic Controller Charged With Possessing A Weapon Of Mass Destruction
The FAA confirmed to NBC Charlotte that Dandan's access to the airport was terminated following his arrest Friday afternoon. Officers with the CMPD's bomb squad later confirmed that the explosive device in question was a homemade pipe bomb.

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.
