Is Touch ID Hacked Yet?

No.

At least not as of my writing this. However, if you are interested in knowing when it is, security researchers Robert Graham and Nick Depetrillo have created 'istouchidhackedyet.com' for just that purpose.

Since originally offering $100 himself to anyone who could break through the security measures that protect the new feature earlier this week, Depetrillo has seen the reward grow tremendously. Now somewhere around $20,000 and still growing, the heaping bounty includes, among cash and Bitcoin, books, alcohol, charity offerings, and even a patent application, presumably including fees.

Though the site was not necessarily created to see the tech giant's new device hacked, it definitely seems to be picking up momentum for precisely that reason. Who knows how long this will take?
