RE: How much is the Phish?

in LeoFinance3 months ago

A lot of people receive messages after the two data leaks. One was from Ledger itself and the other one was from a web shop.
Apart from phishing you also see extortion mails of the attackers. Cybercriminals threaten their victims that they know their victims have large amounts of cryptocoins and they know where they live.
Sad but true.

When you buy hardware wallets online you could ask the reseller to remove your personal info after you receive your hardware wallet. This way your personal data cannot be abused when data gets leaked or hacked.

Yep, this is the first I got for Ledger. I figure they probably di it in rounds and there are several groups doing it. With so many new people coming into crypto the last year, they are going to catch someone.

Will they do it though? :D

In Europe we have the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). This law gives persons more rights over their data companies store of them.
One thing is the right of deletion.
I know a lot of other countries have similar laws, so yes, they should carry out your request for removal.

Yes I know this, but I always suspect that companies are less effective at it than they should be. I have seen quite a lot of evidence that even when they try, they aren't successful at washing it all. Will be interesting with BC later.
