Hackers crowdfund bounty to hack iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner.

Apple’s iPhone 5S comes with a fingerprint scanner and it is now the subject of an online contest started by hackers who are offering a bounty to the first person to hack the biometric lock.
The list at http://www.istouchidhackedyet.com is open to anyone who wants to join in offering a reward, and the amount total for doing the dirty deed is growing by the hour.

The iPhone 5S is already in “short supply” for Friday’s launch – and hackers are most certainly among those eager to get their hands on the premium phone.
