According to the company, the attackers sent e-mails to wallet owners with a link to a fake version of the Ledger website, replacing the address characters with similar or identical spellings.
The fraudulent site offers users to download a program that steals the assets of Ledger clients. According to xrplorer, the stolen coins were sent to Bittrex in five separate transactions, however, the crypto platform "was unable to seize it in time."
Ledger reported in late July a data leak in which at least 1 million addresses were compromised.
