How I hacked a hardware crypto wallet and recovered $2 million



I was contacted to hack a Trezor One hardware wallet and recover $2 million worth of cryptocurrency (in the form of THETA). Knowing that existing research was already out there for this device, it seemed like it would be a slam dunk. Little did I realize the project would turn into a roller coaster ride with over three months of experimentation, failures, successes, and heart-stopping moments. It reminded me that hacking is always unpredictable, exciting, and educational, no matter how long you’ve been doing it. In this case, the stakes were higher than normal: I only had one chance to get it right.

    Hi, we just want to add that this is an outdated exploit that is not a concern for current users and that we fixed in 2017 right after a report that we received through our responsible disclosure program. This attack requires full physical access to the device, and there is no record of any funds being compromised.

    I hacked into my own hardware wallet with help and recovered almost 16 million dollars. I had bitcoins in it that I bought at about 500 bucks and other cryptos, I donated because I believe in giving back. There was a kindergarten and they needed some items so I bought about 850 dollars for what they needed. Yes, it is s lot. Almost a thousand dollars. I'm also very cheap. However I do buy really expensive wine and eat in the Best places. I bought a Villa for almost 2 million dollars. Things have been great.
