Subverting Fingerprinting 169

squizzar writes in with news of a 27 year old Chinese woman who was discovered to have had her fingerprints surgically swapped between hands in order to fool Japanese immigration. "It is Japan's first case of alleged biometric fraud, but police believe the practice may be widespread. ...

Time for some biometric escalation. Could iris scans be subverted as easily?
