Why Ledger Kept All That Customer Data in the First Place
Sunday’s dump of customer emails and addresses serves as a sobering reminder that even a maker of hardware crypto wallets can become a data honeypot.
Using Ledger Vault's "battle-tested" custody tech, the exchange says security will be enhanced for users as well as other benefits.
The updated app will let users connect to decentralized apps via an integration with open-source protocol WalletConnect.
Banks used to tell Ledger they wanted to do “blockchain, not bitcoin.” Not anymore.
Rogue actors at e-commerce partner Shopify exposed 20,000 new Ledger customer records, including emails, names, postal addresses and phone numbers.
The incident shows the variety of ways data can be used to hurt people, and raises questions about how and if certain data should be retained at all.
