Newly Discovered Vulnerability In All Ledger Hardware Wallets Puts User Funds At Risk

Hardware cryptocurrency wallet manufacturer Ledger has discovered a vulnerability that affects all of its devices and can lead to users losing their funds. According to the report, if the computer that is used to setup the ledger is infected by malware, the attacker can secretly replace the code responsible for generating the address, causing “all future deposits to be sent to the attacker.” Ledger has responded with a quick fix, they are asking users to take advantage of an “undocumented” feature of the wallet that displays the receiving address on the wallet’s physical display.
