+ - Crowdfunded Bounty For Hacking An iPhone 5S->

Submitted by judgecorp
judgecorp writes: There's more than $3000 pledged for a crowdfunded bounty for bypassing an iPhone 5S's fingerprint reader. The bounty, set up by a security expert and an exploit reseller requires entrants to lift prints "like from a beer mug". It has a website — IsTouchIDHackedYet — and payments are pledged by tweets using #IsTouchIDHackedYet. One drawback, is the scheme appears to rely on trust that sponsors will actually pay up.
