Is MSFT Biometric system so easy to bypass?

I happened to read the article Le système biométrique de Microsoft piraté avec de la pâte à fixe ?. It is in French, so I provide here a quick Babelfish translation of the orginal content (I changed few little words from the automatic translation):

Exclusive: French students succeed in circumventing the biometric system of Microsoft, the FingerPrint readers… with adhesive paste!
Two students found a very original means of circumventing the security system of FingerPrint readers of Microsoft. With this intention, they employed candle’s wax and adhesive paste of a very known mark. “With the means of we had we managed to circumvent a system which probably cost million dollars of development”. Most worrying is the easiness to bypass this biometric control. They moulded a print in candle’s wax, used adhesive paste to get the positive and the game is there as a video posted on DailyMotion shows. “Our next idea is the recovery of fingerprints on glass and the exploitation of those”.

Of course, breaking security is illegal. I do not want here to spread some illegal information.
Also, having weak, breakable security systems is not a privilege of Microsoft only….

But, it is fun anyway! I mean, you invest a lot of money in securing something that your children could compromise so easily….

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with
    your website. It looks like some of the written
    text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else
    please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    my lenovo figner printing is not woking. At first, I thought the problem was in the fignerprint driver because it does not running. So I search for new driver in the google for figner print and now it’s running the software but it does not continue/proceed the making of pringer print password. It appeared the statement cannot detect fignerprint sensor. I tried to changed the biometric setting you have said in this site but still not working. Please help me to fix this problem. Thanks.
