Ledger Developers Detect Bug In Chrome Extension For Ether Transactions
The Ledger crypto project developers found an error in the Chrome browser extension for the operations with ether, and warned users about it in their official blog.
All users of the hardware wallet currently see the same constant address for the Ethereum network in the interface. The developers of the wallet urged customers to access MyEthereumWallet and Ledger Live applications for all necessary operations. The project representatives reported that all financial losses caused by this error would be compensated.
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— Ledger (@LedgerHQ) 3 августа 2018 г.
Later, the developers informed that the bug occurred after a new version of the browser extension was released. The programmers advised customers not to use Chrome and to perform all operations in the company's Ledger Live program.
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.— Ledger (@LedgerHQ) 3 августа 2018 г.
As previously reported, there was a beta update of the mobile app MEW Connect from the developers of MyEtherWallet to access the wallet without entering a private key.
