A reseach team at vpnMentor claims to have discovered a huge data breach in security platform BioStar 2.  

On its website, it said it had found a flaw in BioStar 2, a web-based biometric security smart lock platform.

The app is built by Suprema, one of the world’s top 50 security manufacturers, with the highest market share in biometric access control in the EMEA region. Suprema recently partnered with Nedap to integrate BioStar 2 into their AEOS access control system. 

The vpnMentor team said it "was able to access over 1 million fingerprint records, as well as facial recognition information"

Suprema said it had taken steps to address the issue.

"If there has been any definite threat on our products and/or services, we will take immediate actions and make appropriate announcements to protect our customers' valuable businesses and assets," a company spokesman told the Guardian.
