Microsoft + Security = Nothing

PC World : Researcher hacks Microsoft Fingerprint Reader

I'm rather concerned when people talk about replacing passwords and access keys with fingerprint readers. This article kind of confirms my fear. Microsoft's fingerprint reader is only designed to make logging on easier and they discount any security aspect. Pardon!? What's the point!? I think when someone uses their finger to access a computer they will assume there is some security.

It's far too easy to fake a fingerprint.
