Video chat room face to face nasty no registration
After the success of their refined mask design, the Bkav team has dubbed the attack the "evil twin" method.
You may think getting an accurate 3D scan of a target's face would be hard, however, the Bkav team simply set up a few cameras in a room, snapped the target as they entered, and then stitched the pictures together to make a 3D composite using software.
If you're messaging with someone and realize that words just aren't enough, you can simply choose the video icon in the top right corner of the screen and start a video call right from within an existing Messenger conversation.
'Now you can have face-to-face conversations with your friends and the people you care about, via Messenger,' wrote Stan Chudnovsky, Head of Product for Messenger and Param Reddy, Engineering Manager.
The team suggested that fingerprints are still the safest way to protect your phone. Sadly, payers of the Cupertino idiot tax with the new handset don’t get that fingerprint option, so passcode it is for the moment.
Earlier this month, bods at Bkav, based in Vietnam, demonstrated it was possible to bypass the face-recognizing login mechanism using a 0 3D-printed mask, effectively allowing a stranger to unlock a victim's handset.
However, it wasn't that practical as it took up to ten hours and fiddling with the mask's silicone nose fool the Face ID software.
® PS: As some of you may have spotted, Bkav also makes a smartphone, making it an Apple rival bashing Apple.
However, it argues it is primarily a "cyber security firm," and has pointed out vulnerabilities in Samsung handhelds and Google Chrome, as well as being critical of eye-scanning authentication systems since 2008, before it decided to tout its own mobe.
