Major hardware wallet firms, Trezor and Ledger, have announced that they are currently investigating current news that their customer databases are now on sale after a hacker obtained the data.
Data breach monitoring and prevention service Under The Breach announced in a tweet that a hacker was selling these databases. According to the tweet, the hacker obtained the information via a Shopify exploit.
An official tweet from Trezor has responded to the claim. According to the tweet, Trezor has decided to do some investigation, even though it does not use Shopify:
“There are rumors spreading that our eshop database has been hacked thru a Shopify exploit. Our eshop does not use Shopify, but we are nonetheless investigating the situation. We’ve been also routinely purging old customer records from the database to minimize the possible impact.”
Apparently, the hacker is responsible for a 2016 breach of the Ethereum forum. However, there is currently no information that the hacker has the information claimed. So far, no one has confirmed the authenticity.
Shopify has also responded. According to the company’s communications manager Candice So, there is no reason to believe anything like that happened, as there simply is no evidence. The hacker also claims to have the database of crypto firm BnkToTheFuture.
