In June 2020, Ledger suffered a data breach after a website vulnerability allowed hackers to access their customers’ contact details.
The hack includes sensitive information such as the names, mailing addresses, and phone numbers of 272,853 people who purchased Ledger devices in the past.
Cybersecurity intelligence firm Cyble has shared the leaked file with the public, and Ledger has confirmed that the data is accurate.
