Face-recognition software faulty, warns BKAV

In Uncategorized on December 7, 2008 at 5:40 pm

Internet security provider BKAV says it has found a serious fault in the face-recognition software used in Asus, Lenovo and Toshiba laptops.

The fault allows unauthorised users to log on BKAV (Bach Khoa Internetwork Security Centre), advises users of the laptops to abandon the technology until it is fixed.

Face-recognition software harnesses the laptop’s built-in webcam to grant or deny access with a quick reference to stored digital images.

This database is created during a short set-up process designed to provide an adequate profile through a series of still images.

Face-recognition gives users an alternative to signing in to their laptops and multiple users can use the software to access their personal accounts.

But BKAV says its research shows that intruders can use a printed photo of the laptop owner to log in.

“We found this fault in laptops made by Asus, Lenovo and Toshiba,” said BKAV’s security expert Nguyen Minh Duc.

The BKAV has reported the fault to representatives of the three manufacturers in Vietnam , he said.

The BKAV has 10 million users of its Bkis antivirus software.

In September, it found a SaveAs Function fault in Google Chrome software and Microsoft’s Window Encoder.-

NEC Solutions Vietnam Co merged with Sang Tao Corporation, the first between a Japanese company and a Vietnamese company in the IT sector.

The Japanese-invested software firm said the merger would help the two firms better utilize labour forces, improve business efficiency, eliminate duplication of administrative expenses and curb the leakage of technologies.

“As many as 50 percent of the new company’s operations will focus on overseas projects while the remaining 50 percent will focus on providing IT solutions and on networking,” said Masako Hirano, director of communications for NEC Asia, the parent firm of NEC Solutions Vietnam.

The merger would also help NEC Solutions Vietnam get more access to development projects in Vietnam and neighbouring Southeast Asian countries, she said.

Through this merger, the new company now has approximately 150 employees. The number of employees is expected to grow to 300 in the fiscal year starting April 2010 with a sales target of 11.3 million USD.

While NEC Solutions Vietnam was established in April 2006 by NEC Soft and NEC Asia, HCM City-based software and web developer Sang Tao Corporation was established in 1998 and last year earned a revenue of 719,000 USD
