Lenovos Insecure Fingerprint Software

Sun, Jan 28, 2018

Lenovo has released a security advisory about some serious security issues (a holy trinity of weak encryption, hardcoded password, and access without admin authentification) with their Windows-based Fingerprint Manager Pro software. So, if you are running Windows on your Lenovo (why, oh why would you shoot yourself in the foot like that?) and have not deactivated the fingerprint sensor anyway, since biometric security is insecure as fuck and nothing beats a proper password, you should probably take a look.
