Hacking the PS4's facial recognition


[link to this post]
 
Thought this was pretty interesting

A lesser known feature of the PS4 is that if the PlayStation Camera is connected, you can log into a user account via facial recognition.


using a simple image (even when displayed on a tablet), you can log into someone else’s PS4 account. If they have the automatic PSN login set up, you could conceivably access their PlayStation Store account and make a bunch of unwanted purchases with their credit card
