Hackers claim to have unlocked iPhone X's Face ID with a mask

Bkav says it had to create a face mask made up of different materials for different parts of the face.
Rather than striving hard to develop a software to break iPhone X's Face ID, the team at Bkav built a special mask with the aim of tricking the depth-mapping technology. But Apple has claimed in the past that in case of identical twins, it may be possible to fool the Face ID system, and that it is working on ensuring that issue is fixed.
It now appears all that work has been in vain, as Vietnamese security company Bkav has demonstrated that a simple (or somewhat complex) mask is able to fool Face ID in unlocking without the user being present.
While this proof of concept shows that something like this can work, it clear that this isn't a security risk for the average user. It only required roughly $150 excluding 3D printer to make this mask. Panel is this the type of recall, used in the iPhone X. But it looks like an equally big change will come in the iPad tablet series that will adopt some of the technologies that debuted on the iPhone X as well as the new "no-edge" design. Apple claims that Face ID is secure and that the odds of a random person gaining access to your phone is 1 in 1 million.
If the person looking to break in isn't anxious about subtlety, they could just physically force the user to unlock the biometric security anyways, or possibly scan the user's face while they were sleeping or incapacitated.
It is clear that this mask is unlikely to be used against regular users, however, heads of major corporations, heads of state and the Federal Bureau of Investigation should be notified about this vulnerability Apple Face ID. Other slightly more esoteric known vulnerabilities include having the phone unlocked by an identical or near-identical twin. But if you add some nefarious security researchers with a lot of spare time into the mix, things get more complicated.

Rain showers and chilly temperatures for the Colts game
