Voice Recognition Hacked By Customers Twin

HSBC uses voice recognition as a password system for their customers. This system seemed to work until one person hacked into his twin brothers account by mimicking his voice. The brother practices mimicking his twins voice and tried 8 times before being granted access to his account. He wasn’t able to withdraw money, but did have the ability to transfer funds. Since then the organization has stepped up their security and only allows 3 tries before locking the account.
