Ledger phishing emails

By ircrp | ircrp | 25 Oct 2020


 

Phishing attacks reported to be targeting Ledger users with emails claiming the Ledger Live severs have been found on 24th of October 2020 to be infected with malware. The scam is coming from a non-eye catching but definitely non official email @ledgersupport.io luring users to download what is promised to be a new version of Ledger Wallet.

 

We regret to inform you that Ledger has experienced a security breach affecting approximately 85,000 of our customers and that the wallet associated with your e-mail address is within those affected by the breach.

Namely, on Saturday, October 24th 2020, our forensics team has found several of the Ledger Live administrative servers to be infected with malware.

At this moment, it's technically impossible to conclusively assess the severity and the scope of the data breach. Due to these circumstances, we must assume that your cryptocurrency assets are at risk of being stolen.

If you're receiving this e-mail, it's because you've been affected by the breach. In order to protect your assets, please download the latest version of Ledger Live and follow the instructions to set up a new PIN for your wallet.

Sincerely, Ledger
