A hardware wallet designed to store crypto-currencies, and touted by its manufacturer as tamper-proof, has been hacked by a British 15-year-old.

Writing on his blog , Saleem Rashid said he had written code that gave him a back door into the Ledger Nano S, a $100 (£70) device that has sold millions around the world.

It would allow a malicious attacker to drain the wallet of funds, he said.

The firm behind the wallet said that it had issued a security fix.

It is believed the flaw also affects another model - the Nano Blue - and a fix for that will not be available "for several weeks", the firm's chief security officer, Charles Guillemet told Quartz magazine .

OMG can't belive it 15 year old can do that then what about big big hackers. The security issues of cryptocurrency is the only thing stopping me going all out n investing more am keeping it very minimal at the moment.

maybe the best security, for any wallets, is to not show or leave it in public places :roll:

you still have to steal the Ledger to put the malicious backdoor on it :D

Nano S or cold wallet are the *best* security for your assets. Not the perfect one.
There's no perfect security --'

if you have more than 100$ in crypto, yes, you should really think about it.

Are you more scared about a 15 years old who need an acess to your cold wallet to install malicious backdore than a .json file + password depending to MEW to access to your ETH wallet ?
Think about it a little more guys ;)
