Databases of the largest hardware wallets such as Trezor and Ledger were stolen

According to information, a hacker stole the personal data of users of popular hardware wallets through an exploit on the Shopify platform.

Stolen data

According to the “Under The Breach” service for monitoring data breaches, a hacker from the Ethereum forum gained access to the user databases of Trezor and Ledger’s hardware wallets. The database is currently on sale, but it is not known if the data is not false.

They also report that a hacker may have accessed the databases by an exploit in the Shopify platform. If the information provided by Under The Breach is true, the leakage of giants like Ledger and Trezor can only be the tip of the iceberg. 

Answer by Ledger and Trezor

The hacker claims to have personal data of over 40,000 Ledger users, but without passwords. Shortly after the information about the data being stolen appeared, Ledger responded to the database violation in a statement on Twitter. Confirming that they are using Shopify, Ledger noticed that hacker screenshots do not correlate with their own database. The case is still being investigated

The same cybercriminal claims to have the same personal information for over 27,000 Trezor users. On the other hand, Trezor noticed that he does not even use the Shopify platform, which affects the credibility of the hacker’s claims.

What now?

Shopify itself, which according to the hacker managed to steal the data, claims that this cannot be true because the platform’s security system was investigated and no evidence was found to support such accusations.

On the other hand, the hacker was allegedly responsible for hacking the Ethereum forum in 2016. The criminal reported that “the data will only be sold for a lot of money”. The information sold by the hacker is the name, address, phone number and email to more than 80,000 users of a total of 3 most popular hard crypto wallets such as Ledger, Trezor and KeepKey.

Database from ledger and trezor is hacked

The hacker’s actions do not stop there, currently, he is also trying to sell databases of 18 virtual crypto exchanges and forums. These include the Korean Korbit exchange, the Bitso trading platform and the BlockCypher, Nimirum and Plutus blockchain platforms.

A Bitso representative says that so far they have not found any evidence that a third party may have sufficient information to access client accounts. The Exchange’s cybersecurity team is currently under investigation.

Hackers still pose a major threat to the crypto market. Cybercriminals steal users’ data from the stock exchanges every year, causing a significant number of crypto-machines to disappear. Regular data leaks discourage potential investors and such events convince sceptics that the crypto market is still uncertain and dangerous.
