Apparently the microsoft scanners in the keyboards and stuff are tighter security than like a 2000 dollar door fingerprint door lock.
Good stuff :)

apparently you need like a grooved finger frint placed on a pulsating finger for it to work.
The door tested only needed a bad quality photo copied pic of the print to work.

Grooved, pulsating finger? Can I buy one of those for recreational purposes?

Umm, back on topic. Any technology can be defeated. Slip a keyboard traffic recorder in line with the keyboard behind the PC and record the finger print scan. Same approach they use on ATMs.

I'll get back to you on how to crack laptops.

Edit
Ok I though about it for a minute. Use an RF receiver and listen to the laptop emissions from a cross the street. (Will work on desktops too). They currently have an audio listening system that can read the letters you type into a keyboard. Each key sounds a little different based on location on the keyboard and how it is pressed when typing.

Not if you use the "hunt and peck" method of typing. :D

Wanted to get one back in 2005 when I bought my new Keyboard + mouse set. Have no idea why I chose the wheel scroll keyboard instead of the finger print scanner version. :(

Post a link please?

We use finger print and retinal recoginition where I work and they cost MUCH less than $2000 a scanner not to mention they can NOT be defeated by a copied picture...

Fujitsu even makes a biometric scanner which uses the circular system within your hand to trace your veins and arteries... and while it cant be faked, can be "fooled" .5 % of the time... based on 700 people...

See HERE

Enjoy...
