The potentially malicious Chrome extension caught stealing Ledger wallet recovery seeds. Ledger Support warns that stolen seed phrases will allow an attacker to recover Ledger wallet content on another device and gain access to the victim's cryptocurrency private keys.

Previously iHodl reported that Ledger added support for tezos (XTZ) staking. The wallet owners can now manage and earn XTZ rewards through Ledger Live, while still ensuring top security through their Ledger hardware wallets.
