What happens if you don’t wear a fingerprint scanner in the bathroom?

If you haven’t heard, biometric scanners are a major security feature for many businesses.

They’re ubiquitous, and they’re also easy to spot.

Here’s a look at a few of the most common biometric breaches, and how you can avoid them. 


The WannaCry Attack On June 11, the US government said hackers gained access to the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) network, stole information from OPM employees and used it to attack its biometric system.

However, OPM’s security director told Ars that the breach involved stealing data from people’s personal records and then using it to infect a server to steal data from the system.

“This is an intrusion that affects all OPM systems,” the director said. 

In the months following the breach, OMP reported more than 50,000 data breaches and more than 1.2 million lost credentials. 


The Sony Eve Hacking On July 4, Sony revealed it had been hacked by the same group that broke into the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

“The attackers were using data stolen from the ONI data, and used the ONIs data to steal the information from Sony’s corporate network,” the researcher, Scott Alexander, told Ars.

The breach is believed to be related to an attack against Sony that compromised data from around 2 million employees, but the extent of the attack is still unknown. “

I think they’re using stolen ONI passwords and other personal information to access Sony’s private networks.”
