Cutting-Edge Security

I’ve often joked that if biometric access controls were widely adopted, thieves would stop trying to steal my password and start trying to steal my finger.

I guess it’s not just a joke any more.

But having stripped the car, the thieves became frustrated when they wanted to restart it. They found they again could not bypass the immobiliser, which needs the owner’s fingerprint to disarm it.

They stripped Mr Kumaran naked and left him by the side of the road – but not before cutting off the end of his index finger with a machete.
