Can we please have a serious fucking discussion about this Ledger breach?
Can I even trust these faggots with my linkies now after their customer emails got leaked?
>"b-but only customer info got hacked, the device itself didn't get breached so funds are safu"
Their whole selling point is being ultra-secure and hack-proof, yet they can't even secure simple customer data
What the fuck does that say about their ability to secure valuable crypto?

Trezor deletes your buying info after 1 month. It's retarded but avoids shit like happened no ledger
The rest is also the same. If you lose your Trezor you just can buy a new one and restore the wallet.

>> No.20844800

Leaks like these are worrisome, crypto investors are already considered easy prey for robbers because the robber actually can get control of the assets and transfer them to himself securely within the span of a couple of hours.
I would be surprised if we don't get so see organized groups collecting names from all the leaks, and then just target those of them that live in large houses.
After a couple of homeinvasions the payout would be greater than that of robbing a bank, and the risk of getting caught is a lot lower.

the device itself is pretty foolproof unless you fuck it up yourself or you're connected and accept a malicious software update assuming ledger was under attack or something. the hack is email address only for most people and they sent an email to specifically warn you if it included home addresses. if you got that email I would say sleep with a shotgun

They are completely incompetent fucks. That's for sure.

But unless you're one of the unlucky 9500 customers who's actual physical delivery address was exposed, I don't think you have to be concerned at all.

If you are one of the 9500, you'll be informed about that.

Assuming Ledger is telling the truth about the extent of the breach.

>> No.20847193

They sure told the truth 2 weeks after they discovered it...
Imagine if somebody already got attacked during this time without knowing.

Now imagine a catastrophic hardware bug being found in the ledger.
Do you think they will wait a few weeks to inform their customers?

Trezor and ledger both are shite. Ngrave is superior than both

>> No.20847317

Ledger doesn't actually build the secure element of the the device. It's a proprietary chip mostly used by the French government. So it's actually very hard to fuck this up.

My biggest concern with news like that is always physical security. If you mistrust the Ledger hardware now, make a new cold storage setup and transfer the funds. That's an easy problem to solve.

Having bad guys show up at your door ready to cut your fingers off until you give them your PIN/Seed, that's something much harder to solve.

I for one will never buy any bitcoin related hardware in my life. Only off the shelf stuff and then building it myself. Like having a permanently offline, encrypted laptop.

yall are retarded. the usb stick itself is not compromised in any way.

the marketing/contact information is compromised, so now a hacker can sell your address to some muscle (who know you have enough crypto to justify a hardware wallet) or another hacker to steal your email and sim card.

so your crypto is safe as long as you can survive a beating and not be forced to send all your crypto to them kek

they don't really add to your security as a cold wallet but they can lull you into a false sense of security. as hot wallet they are arguably useful if annoyingly cumbersome.

>> No.20848153

Just as secure as a paper wallet, theoretically. In practice? Less secure since the retarded company behind it leaks your personal info so that you get caught and tortured. Best bet is probably to stick your paper wallet in a banks storage room.

>> No.20848162

it really is more secure as long as no one knows you have it and could force you to empty it for them. it signs a transaction without any need of exposing the private key to the computer itself, and requires a physical password be entered before it signs the transaction. it protects against hacking, not against beatings.

>> No.20848171

>What the fuck do we do if we bought a Ledger already? Are we fucked?

> I moved from the address I was at, but it still sucks.
Then you should be fine, even if you're one of the 9500 unlucky customers, who's actual physical address was leaked.

> Should I buy a gun?
Of course, always. Even better, if you're jurisdiction permits it, build it yourself. For an AR-15 for example, in the US, legally only the lower receiver is a gun. All the rest is legally just metal and plastic. Luckily, lower receivers are very primitive chunks of metal. You can buy a so called 80% lower, drill a few holes and now you have an actual lower. Buy all other parts an in cash and assemble your completely below the radar AR-15. Get cheap (but quality) parts, because should you actually have to shoot someone with it, the police is going to confiscate it at last for the duration of the investigation.

Nigger's FOODBABE renders Ledger vulnerable until the next generation of hardware wallets.

Use Trezor or go full cold-storage and do a 2/3 multisig with Ledge/Trezor and Electrum.

>> No.20848233

they are more secure against cyber attacks but actually an attack vector in an evil maid scenario.
the security of these devices is laughable cryptographically speaking. snake oil security.
but as long as you can protect them from physical access that's not a problem. the problems however don't stop there. at all.

I'm just glad that i was able to buy my Ledger when i lived at a different Address I was renting out.

>> No.20848286

probably not
let's say you run a business that accepts crypto. you want to make sure your clerks can't steal from you so you authorize all outgoing transactions. if you do that from a computer it can be hacked. if you do that remotely with a hardware wallet device you probably can't get hacked.

>> No.20848352

honestly I have 2 ledgers, which I bought off amazon so I wasn't fucked thankfully, and they're worth it for the fact I don't have to run the retarded piece of shit bitcoin blockchain on my computer. exchanges check your withdrawal addresses for anything they deem unsavory/high risk, so it's good to have an easy to use device to route crypto payments. i don't use them to store bulk funds at all

>> No.20848380

basically the biggest fucking issue with hardware wallets is the standard recommended backup and restore process is a big fucking gaping weakness that practically begs for a disaster. it's unsafe and unsecure in every which way.

>> No.20848461

>I don't have to run the retarded piece of shit bitcoin blockchain on my computer.
most people don't m8. also lol at the argument about exchanges makes zero sense.

truth is encrypted paper wallets are still the best possible option for long term cold store you can have a very high level of secure redundancy against theft loss or disaster for practically no cost.
they are however cumbersome to use as exchanges still don't support direct swiping of encrypted wallets for unfathomable reasons.

The major problem with ledger is the fact that they have updates that may lock you out if you havent got your key.
