Zach Epstein reported it for BGR, but The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple had the best reaction on his site.

When it comes to Samsung’s fingerprint scanner technology embedded in the home button on the new Galaxy S5, there’s good news and bad news.

The bad news, however, is that it has apparently already been hacked, leaving Galaxy S5 owners’ devices and their PayPal accounts at risk.
