Ledger exploit makes you spend Bitcoin instead of altcoins

posted 6 months ago
A vulnerability in Ledger's hardware wallets allows a request for an altcoin transaction to actually request the movement of Bitcoin.

The exploit was reportedly disclosed to Ledger back in 2019. Ledger said it's because the firm wanted "to avoid a situation where user funds would be locked and users unable to spend their funds.”
