Top hardware wallet Ledger revealed that a breach occurred in its customer information database, and email IDs for close to a million customers have been stolen. User funds are safe, but the risk of an extensive phishing attack is very high. Ledger’s marketing database had a vulnerability that put the personal information and purchases details of customers at risk. The company has since sent a notice to customers whose information is at risk.Email IDs for over a million customers were leaked.

Sensitive information such as full names, phone numbers, and addresses were taken for a subset of 9,500 customers, according to Ledger. Ledger notified the French Data Protection Authority and is actively monitoring evidence that helps them figure out whether the data is being sold on the internet. Notably, this could result in a large scale phishing attack to coerce Ledger users into revealing their wallet recovery phrase and keys.
