After all these years this is the first "hack" on the hardware, and it's minor at best.

This vulnerability centres around allowing a third party service to write your transaction request for you, for example using the ledger directly with a dApp.

This alone is quite dumb. If you own a ledger, you are probably using it as a secure cold storage and so using it directly with some probably untested dApp is completely at odds with why you bought the Ledger.

I'm not sure what the safest way to create a transaction is but certainly I would not want some third party dApp doing it. I would probably use ledger's own app to send small amounts to a hot wallet imported to Metamask, and then play with yolo dApps using Metamask.

Safest way is just doing everything manually in an offline computer. I'm an idiot so ask someone else.

If you're gonna buy a hard wallet get a coldwallet or trezor. Trezor is easily better than Ledger simply because it's open source (unlike Ledger). With Ledger you have no idea what fuckery the company is doing to your device and firmware.

no they don't. not for holding at least. for a hot wallet yes they do add to security altho i would still use one in multisig setup.

also have to add if you use trezor properly as on should then you can come close to the security a bip38 paper wallet adds for storing while maintaining the transactional security of the hardware wallets.
however almost no one uses them as one should and it's not the standard protocol.
and paper wallet still offer way better and way way cheaper secure redundancy for cold store.

The problem isn't really getting your password cracked. It's more about the vulnerabilities that come when you are accessing your wallet to send crypto. I'm holding LINK so when the staking comes out, I want to setup some secure laptop device which I will only use for my LINK wallet access point and managing staking. I'd probably need to do a lot of reading to completely understand what the real vulnerabilities are and so on, so I could genuinely feel comfy. Currently I can't be bothered so I trust CB to not get fully drained and if they do get a bit drained, that they will repay their customers due to the sheer size and influence they have on crypto.

I'm not going to be dumping over half my LINKs all of a sudden at any time unless it literally shoots up 300% due to some incredible mania phase and if both CB and Binance are down, I could not sell LINK even if I had it on my own wallet.

A lot of anons complain about meta mask since it lets you configure the amount of gas to send.

Find a usb drive laying around. Download Tails OS. Format the drive and install Tails on it. Restart your PC and boot into Tails OS. Navigate to https://github.com/Bithomp/xrp-paper-wallet and download the html file. MOST SECURE: Locate a spare laptop, wipe it and install an encrypted Linux distro offline. Never connect this laptop to the internet. Connect Tails USB to laptop and boot into Tails. LEAST SECURE: Disconnect from internet from your current PC and restart into Tails offline. Navigate to the html file and open it in browser. Print/Write both public and private keys. You will deposit XRP into the wallet using the public address. You will never key in the private key anywhere until you are ready to withdraw XRP from the wallet. Consider the wallet hot after your first use of the private key, and you will need to create a new wallet for future offline security. Create at least two copies, one for a safe in your home and one for a lock box at your bank. Metal stamping, engraving or 3D printing should only be fully trusted if done yourself, otherwise understand the liability you introduce having this service provided for you. Alternatively, an encrypted usb drive packed away in a faraday bag works as well.

Once Ledger breaks through the 25% resistance the panic will begin and ledger owners will collectively begin returning them all, with the engineers already long gone. Once it barts straight to -50%, unabated FEAR will ripe through all Ledgies. With all those who put their current savings onto these scams are twitching at their arsehole continuously while refreshing Ledger.com. The -90% mark will be met, making this company look like a 2017-2018 shitcoin. The final deluded Ledgies will begin to go offline, and wagecuckers with their entire crypto holdings loaded up on a Ledger will be left with it stuck in their wallet, unable to move it to Uniswap to salvage some self respect. TThe company goes bankrupt, somehow temporarily going -110%. From that day forward the deluded Ledgie wagecucking engineering nerds who bought this hardware wallet thinking it had security will go back to their jobs, with no money in their wallets, to be made redundant by the next wave of pajeets arriving to undercut their wages. Deluded Ledgies will hold onto their wallets FOREVER, with no job, no money, and no crypto. I warned you Ledgies. There’s still time to get out. SELL NOW. Don’t be deluded, don’t be a Ledgie.

I have a question about the recovery seed (the 24 words list) for these hardware wallets
I know everyone says it's best to only write them down on paper when you get them and store the paper somewhere safe, and not to store the word list on a text file on a computer because of hackers/malware/keyloggers
But what if I do the following?
>create a blank text file on my computer
>once a day, add 50 completely random words to the text file and save
>do this for about 20 days until I have a huge mass of 1,000 random words in the text file
>start up the hardware wallet for the first time then get my 24-word recovery seed
>write it down on a piece of paper
>after that, once a day type out 50 random words to add onto the text file, except one of those words is actually one of the words from the recovery seed
>repeat this for 23 more days until all 24 words from the list are now in the text file
>all 24 words are now placed in a certain pattern among the mass of hundreds of other random words in the text file, so that only I would be able to pick out the right words in the right order from the text file by memorizing that certain pattern
>zip and password-protect text file with a simple number-based password that I can easily remember
>store several copies of the zipped text file in several forms of storage, online and offline
>destroy the paper with the 24-word recovery seed on it
Is there any way someone is likely to still be able to steal my recovery seed if I do things this way?
This is just an idea from a smoothbrain who knows hardly anything about hardware wallets or the risks that come with them, pls no bully

>> No.21035560


>> No.21035563

i'm not good at math, but my gut says "don't", because 1000 random words is a lotlotlot less than the total number of random words that exist

the whole point of random words is there's a LOT of them, and A LOT to the 24th power is FUCKING HUGE HOLY SHIT IT'S A BIG NUMBER
which is why it's impossible to guess it with any brute force method
but if you drop the pool down to 1000 random words, the number of possible configurations becomes 1000^24 which is still insanely huge but it narrows down possible guesses by a lot
actual mathfags could come along and say "1000^24 still takes how-ever-many-thousands-of-years of brute force to crack" but i know it's going to be orders of magnitude smaller than the true full dictionary of possible random words (and not just 1000)
if i'm wrong someone let me know though

>> No.21036913

that could have some serious drawbacks, mainly if you die you can at least leave it to a relative. Or if you suffer brain damage or mild amnesia you won't lose access to your key if you suddenly can't remember the words. So I don't think relying on your memory is a good idea for long term storage.

Obviously with these, you don't just leave them out in the open or under your mattress, you would store them in a vault in a secure location, either in your home or in a safety deposit box.

Maybe you write the key across multiple tags and store each of those in a separate location for max paranoia levels. Although then you run the risk of if one key gets lost, you're fucked

right now I think it's what I described, stamp the key onto some metal and store it in a secure location

There are ways to send transactions from an offline computer, though it's a bit tedious. I think Electrum has a guide. I plan to hodl most of my crypto until I dump it en masse, and in that case you can just sweep the funds into a hot wallet by importing the private key, then send the coins to your exchange from there.

If you trade regularly then an offline paper wallet won't be ideal for you. It's mainly for storing bulk savings medium-to-long term.

pgp uses public keys so you can send encrypted data over unencrypted channels, it's not quite the same thing as standard file encryption. as far as I understand veracrypt, it encrypts files on your computer, pgp encrypts the data itself.
