On August 2, developers of the hardware wallet Ledger reported a bug in the Chrome extension for managing Ethereum assets. Ledger encourages customers to use only the Ledger Live application or the MyEthereumWallet wallet. Ledger will cover all losses to users.
“There is currently an issue on the Ledger Wallet Ethereum Chrome application, showing on screen a static address (same for all users). This looks more like a bug than a compromission. Engineering is working on it, we’ll know more soon. PLEASE USE ONLY LEDGER LIVE / MEW MEANWHILE”.
“We confirm this is a bug in the Chrome app, coming from a side effect when we pushed an update to invite users to use the Ledger Live instead of the Chrome app. A wrong address was shown on the computer. Ledger will cover 100% of all losses due to the issue.”
An hour ago the Ledger team wrote that they were forced to shut down Ledger’s ETC and ETH infrastructures.
“Following an incident on the Ledger side, we have been forced to shut down our ETC and ETH infrastructures. The services will be back around 3:00PM CET. You can follow our progresses on our status page http://status.ledger.fr“
