Re: Stupidity

A lot of these scanners were and probably still are vulnerable to some extremely simple duplication attacks. While breaking into a fingerprint scanner lock with a print out of a fingerprint was perhaps a bit extreme and is unlikely to work on any kind of quality scanner made these days, it's absolutely conceivable to make copies of fingerprints for other people to scan you into work with at minimal expense.
