According to a Xinhua report, two men in China have been accused of tricking the country's State Taxation Administration's identity verification system to create fake invoices.
The pair manipulated high-definition photographs with an app that turns photos into videos and then used a smartphone to bypass its camera during facial authentication, instead feeding their doctored videos into the system.
Subsequently, the facial recognition system authenticated the people in the videos.
