One of the most topical conversations in the cryptocurrency space in the last 24 hours has been the notorious Ledger wallet e-commerce customer data leak. According to the hardware wallet manufacturer’s own testimony, the e-commerce marketing database was breached on June 25, 2020. They found out the database was exploited after a researcher tipped the company off on July 14, 2020, and they initiated an internal investigation.
“Contact and order details were involved. This is mostly the email address of our customers, approximately 1M addresses,” Ledger wrote at the time of discovery. “Further to investigating the situation we have also been able to establish that, for a subset of 9,500 customers were also exposed, such as first and last name, postal address, phone number or ordered products.”

A great number of people said they had received phishing emails and some individuals have reportedly lost funds. Additionally, a number of Ledger customers that had their phone numbers leaked have been detailing that malicious text messages have been sent to their phones.
