AMLT Crypto Alert of the Week

Welcome to week 5 of the Crypto Alert of the Week series by AMLT, a series dedicated to documenting interesting or high profile frauds/hacks etc that recently happened and have been reported into the AMLT Network and show how the AMLT Network can help track and prevent it in the future.

The other week, one of the largest hardware wallet companies in the world, Ledger, issued a warning that their latest software has a bug which was displaying a static unique address to all their users.

The issue was identified at 9:50 am however, by that time already over 200 ETH was sent to a 'random' address (0xc33b16198dd9fb3bb342d8119694f94adfcdca23) by Ledger Nano customers.
Ledger then announced that it does not have access to this account and that it was a bug/glitch which caused the problem. Therefore, the funds sent to this address are lost and cannot be recovered, however Ledger decided to do a refund to anyone who send funds there. In total over 280 ETH and $15k worth of tokens were sent to this address before the bug was fixed.
Below you can see what the AML Risk Report related to the address looked like before it was reported to us through the AMLT Network. Further below you can see what it looks like afterwards.

As we have been unable to find any proof suggesting that this was potentially an internal job or other nefarious action we have marked this address as related to a “Bug” in our platform.

The Coinfirm Platform and AMLT Network continues to be adopted by more entities and available to more of their users, with that the ability to help limit the amount of losses incurred by such bugs improves and further prevents users and companies from taking on potential risk.If you're interested in partnering with Coinfirm or become a AMLT Network Member then contact us!
