Default Beware the peace sign man

Flashing peace signs in Internet snaps might be giving spooks access to your personal data, smartphone and smart houses.

A new study from Japanís National Institute of Informatics (NII) says fingerprint recognition technology is so common place on smartphones, tablets and laptop computers that spooks and hackers want to get their paws on your pawprints.

Mobile devises with high-quality cameras and social media sites where photographs can be easily posted is raising the risk of personal information being leaked, reports said.

The NII researchers copied fingerprints based on photos taken by a digital camera three metres away from the subject.
