After the Ledger database hack, can their Monero wallet be trusted?
As many of you are probably aware, Ledger recently had their e-commerce database hacked. The data of one million customers were robbed, that includes full names, street addresses, telephones and emails.
Right now, a massive phishing campaign is ongoing, where you will receive a text message (they have your telephone number) will your full name appearing.
Even if you don’t fall for this scam, be aware that the scammers know that you probably own a Ledger wallet, and they have your full name and street address. This is very scary, especially if they recognise your name as a person publicly known to own a large quantity of crypto.
How could Ledger not secure better such extremely sensitive data is beyond me. They deserve a law suit.
I was just thinking about buying a Ledger to store my XMR, but I’m having second thoughts, especially since they XMR wallet is closed source. What do you guys think is the safest wallet to store monero?
