The support center of a popular hardware cryptocurrency wallet Ledger has identified a fake Chrome extension asking to enter a 24-word recover phrase.
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.
