All technology can be defeated.....

The Japanese love their technology solutions, but this time their solution got pwned. Cigarette vending machines with built-in age verification mechanisms using a camera can be defeated by holding up a magazine photo of an older person. Ordinarily, the machines are 90% accurate in determining legal age (until the magazine photo hack).

I chuckled when I read that.

Normally, cigarette vending machines use age-verification ID cards.
