TODAY’S TOP STORY
If you tilt it juuust right… boom, passwords appear! No, really. PINs and passwords can be stolen just by watching the way a phone tilts. PINlogger.js was tested on 50 phones and by the 3rd attempt achieved 99.5% accuracy to guess a user’s mobile PIN. It works by listening to the motion and orientation sensor streams of the mobile device, analysing these streams, and inferring the user’s PIN using an artificial neural network.
