As Mashable reports, a British couple discovered the bug when a cheap silicone case on the device allowed the husband to unlock even as his fingerprint wasn't registered on the device.
Samsung has acknowledged the issue and is now working on a fix.
The company said that the issue stems from the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner recognising a pattern on the silicone phone case along with the fingerprint. ■
