A hacker is selling stolen data from the top three hardware wallets – leading to an investigation by at least two of the companies allegedly involved.
The hacker claims to have stolen data from Trezor, Ledger and KeepKey wallets. The allegations were republished on Twitter today by the cybersecurity company Under The Breach.
THE Under The Breach added that the data was stolen due to an exploit on the Shopify website. He published screenshots in which the hacker announced that the names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mails of users of the hardware wallet were for sale. Passwords were not included.
The Trezor informed on twitter that “There are rumors that our eshop database was hacked by a Shopify exploit. Our online store does not use Shopify, but we are investigating the situation. We also routinely remove old customer records from the database to minimize the possible impact. ”
"Only a lot of money" would be accepted for the data, said the hacker, according to another screenshot taken by Under The Breach. The hacker was responsible for hack into the Ethereum.org forum in 2016.
The screenshots published by Under The Breach show that the hacker claims to have the complete SQL database for the BnkToTheFuture investment platform. According to The Breach, he got in touch with BnkToTheFuture, but “he couldn't get them to take it seriously”.
Ledger also issued a statement saying “Rumors say that our Shopify database was hacked through an exploit. Currently, our team is verifying these allegations by analyzing the so-called hacked database and, so far, it does not correspond to our actual database. We are continuing the investigations and we are taking the matter seriously. ”
ShapeShift, a company that owns KeepKey, had not commented on the allegations until publication. ShapeShift has not yet answered Decrypt's questions.
