Ledger, Trezor, KeepKey: Did the Information of Leading Hardware Wallets Leak?


Under the Breach team, known for their cyber crime research, published their conversations with a hacker who claimed to have captured information from Ledger and Trezor, one of the leading hardware wallets.

After Shopify Accident
According to the researchers, hackers, by posting in a forum; reported that many crypto-based products have accessed the database. These products include Trezor, Ledger and KeepKey hardware wallets, as well as the Bitso payment provider and Ethereum.org forum.

Hacker also claimed that an investor from the Bank To The Future platform was obtaining a SQL dump. According to the interview with this mysterious hacker, the attacker accessed sensitive databases through a critical flaw in the data storage infrastructure of Shopify.

The hacker mentioned that the only problem was the money. Indicating his message that “ONLY LOADED MONEY CAN GIVE MONEY”, the hacker was also very selective about customers:

“Don’t offer me little money, just come if you have a lot of money.”

Not That Bad
While demonstrating how it leaked into the hacker databases, some of the alleged ‘victims’ denied that their customers’ data was leaked.

Ledger team was the first to explain that hackers were bluffing:

The latest hardware crypto wallet manufacturers have started their own research and announced that hacker’s files for sale do not match the actual Ledger database.

Trezor’s e-commerce team has also launched an investigation and their representatives have announced that they are not using Shopify.
