If the classic hand-on-hip pose fails us after a few too many gins on a night out, you can be fairly certain we'll pull out the peace sign, and hope for the best.

And while we may cringe at ourselves while trawling through Facebook the following morning, it turns out that that particular gesture does more than make us look like a Miley Cyrus wannabe, but actually poses a genuine risk to our security.

No, seriously.

According to a recent study, displaying your fingertips in a digital image leaves you vulnerable to data hacking.

Investigating the theory, Japan’s National Institute of Informatics (NII) recently conducted an experiment into the likelihood that fingerprints can be copied and stolen, and findings conclude it is possible even from as far as nine feet away.

"Just by casually making a peace sign in front of a camera, fingerprints can become widely available,’ explained NII researcher Isao Echizen. "Fingerprint data can be recreated if fingerprints are in focus with strong lighting in a picture."

Attempting to combat the threat, the NII are said to have developed a transparent film which when attached to an individual's fingertips conceals the unique print, but it won't be available until at least 2019.

Back to the classic 'skinny upper arm' pose, pronto.



We have to say we're still recovering from the season seven debut of The Walking Dead.

We said goodbye to not one, but two popular characters and our hearts were breaking as we watched both of them take on Lucille.

With Abraham taking the first whacking of the barbed-wire bat, a few eagle-eyed fans noticed that he gave Sasha a very special goodbye before Negan ended his time on the show.

He gave her a peace sign. Michael Cudlitz, who played Abraham on the show told the Huffington Post, "The peace sign was something that ran with Abraham and Sasha throughout the whole series.

"Going back into it, we had to figure out a way that he could basically tell Sasha that everything was going to be OK and to say goodbye, and that was what we came up with. For those who caught it, I think it’s highly, highly effective."

First of all, we are RAGING we didn't notice this when we watched the premiere, and second of all, how sweet was that?!

According to Greg Nicotero, who is an executive producer on the show, the peace sign was actually Greg's idea and he wanted to include it in his ending.

We already can't wait for next week's episode.
