Windows 10 facial recognition tricked by printed photo

Windows 10 facial recognition tricked by printed photo

The feature will be available for PCs running Intel's 7th generation Core (i3, i5, or i7 7xxx or 7Yxx) or higher CPUs.

Researchers from German pen-testing firm SYSS report that Windows 10 systems that have not yet received the recent Fall Creators Update are vulnerable to a "simple spoofing attack using a modified printed photo of an authorized person".

US Existing-Home Sales Jumped in November
All-cash sales were 22 percent of transactions in November, which is up from 20 percent in October and 21 percent a year ago. Regionally in November, combined single- and multifamily housing production rose 19% in the West and 11.1% in the South.

Of course, in addition to the above, you will need an HDR10-compatible monitor to actually enjoy all the HDR content Netflix now has to offer. A few of the current Netflix titles that support HDR include Chef's Table, Stranger Things 2, and the upcoming WIll Smith Netflix Original movie Bright. It started off with Intel and Nvidia developing GPUs that use the required 10 bits-per-channel for increased RGB colour support. "Depending on the targeted Windows 10 version and the target device hardware configuration, slightly different modifications of the spoofing attack had to be used, for example photos with higher resolution (480×480 pixels instead of 340×340 pixels) or specially colored images", explained the researchers. First we had the introduction of the Windows Subsystem for Linux, which allows you to run an "almost" full version of Linux on top of Windows and then Microsoft brought us built-in beta versions of OpenSSH Client and OpenSSH server.

But it turns out, Microsoft's face-authentication software for some older versions of Windows 10 can be fooled rather easily with a modified photo. It is odd that they did not mention if AMD and Radeon would support HDR as they are more than capable to support it. But the researchers will still able to bypass it and get into a device.

Her father claims the video was filmed immediately after Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters at their home. The 14-year-old boy is now in a coma.

However, just applying the Fall Creators Update is not enough to block the spoofing attack, according to SYSS.

Graphics Driver: 387.68 (23.21.13.8768) or higher. In all, there are now over 200 hours of HDR content available from Netflix.
