Kraken Security Labs has identified a critical security issue in Trezor hardware wallets which enables seeds to be extracted from the devices.
Kraken Finds Flaw in Trezor Wallets
Kraken researchers claim they were able to access Trezor One and T wallet keys by manipulating the voltage in the micro-controller. These hardware components hold vital information, such as seeds, yet are not designed for such purposes. This vulnerability has been understood for some time, and has also been discovered on other hardware wallets.
To exploit this bug, an attacker needs access to the physical device, which limits the seriousness of this threat. Nevertheless, devices designed to crack Trezor wallets using this procedure could easily be made. Overall, the team stated that it only takes 15 minutes to exploit this flaw using specialized…
