However, by printing a modified photo (with a specific resolution or color scale) of the authenticated user, or by covering the RGB camera with tape, the researchers bypassed Hello through the near-IR enabled camera easily.
"With paper printouts of this type, it is possible to successfully bypass Windows Hello Face Authentication in different versions of Windows 10 with different hardware and software configurations", they said.
Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is required (version 1703). Enhanced anti-spoofing appears to be ineffective at stopping the exploit on older versions of Windows 10. SYSS found that if the anti-spoofing feature is disabled on the Creators Update (released earlier this year) or Fall Creators Update (released in October) then you can still bypass Windows Hello.

"Windows Hello Face Authentication uses information from a special near-infrared camera (near-IR camera) and, depending on the Windows 10 version used, additional information from an RGB camera for user authentication".
Microsoft had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication.
Netflix - "We are thrilled to announce the addition of High Dynamic Range (HDR) support on Windows 10 for both the Edge browser and the Netflix app". And it's unsurprisingly consolidating its mobile-keyboard strategy around SwiftKey. This is the component that drives the Microsoft Security Essentials/ Windows Defender, Microsoft Endpoint Protection, and Windows Intune Endpoint Protection for anti-malware. The Surface includes an "enhanced anti-spoofing" feature specifically created to block Windows Hello bypasses. Here's what the company will highlight at RSA next week.
