    | If your computer has been infected with a key logger, will it also capture
    | your finger print?
    | Does the finger print scanner offer any additional protection or is it just
    | a convenience so you don't have to remember
    | a bunch of passwords?

    A mere convenience.

    A keylogger may not get the biometric data but maybe well crafted datastealer may be able
    to do so. The possibility is still highly remote {at this time}.
