Windows 10 facial recognition tricked by printed photo

Researchers at the German IT Security company SySS GmbH successfully fooled the Windows 10 facial recognition system by using a printed photo of the user's face. So, if you do happen to stumble upon other issues, feel free to let Microsoft know by dropping a post in the Windows 10 Feedback Hub.

A separate problem caused by last Tuesday's update can also cause the PC to report the update has failed to install "because of Error 0x80070643". We've seen that in the rise of fingerprint scanners and facial recognition software, such as Windows Hello and Face ID on the iPhone X.

High Dynamic Range is considered by most A/V buffs to be at least as important as 4K resolution in improving picture quality, if not more so.

Microsoft describes Windows Hello as offering "enterprise-grade security without having to type in a password". Windows Hello must also be entirely reconfigured to prevent a successful attack, so facial recognition should be manually disabled and then turned back on. The latest Windows 10 builds (1709 and 1703) were able to block the exploit when set up correctly with anti-spoofing.
