All cryptocurrency savings one Reddit user known by the nickname moodyrocket disappeared after he started to use BU cryptocurrency wallet Ledger Nano purchased on eBay.
The attacker stole cryptocurrency for a total amount equal to 34.000 dollars.
I haven’t used their Ledger for about a week and today decided to check your balance in XRP, Litecoin and Dash only to discover that they were transferred to an unknown address at approximately 7:30 p.m. the previous day. I don’t understand how this is possible since I haven’t used the wallet for a week. I don’t know what to do, on the purse I kept cryptocurrency amounting to about £ 25,000.
According to most palmavela reddit, the attacker used the method man in the middle when
generation led phrase the user is given not a random set of words, and
prepared in advance by the attacker. Director-General Ledger (user murzika) suggested to involve the seller of the purse to justice through legal means.
As the popularity of cryptocurrencies is growing, there are more stories about the theft by hackers. To the set of standard safety equipment when working with cryptocurrencies now you need to add one more thing – the rejection of the use of BU cryptocurrency wallets, at least if you have no particular reason to trust the seller.
