Wallet Security report. This note is related to allegedly… | by Hathor Labs | Jul, 2022

This note is related to allegedly stolen HTR tokens reported by community members.

We have given support to all users who reported their issues to us. The reports were taken with relevance and responsiveness from our team, escalating to our engineering team and unfolding a security inspection of the following wallets:

  1. Hathor Wallet Desktop v0.22.0 for macOS, Linux, and Windows.
  2. Hathor Wallet Mobile v0.17.1 for iOS and Android.
  3. Hathor Headless Wallet v0.11.0.
  4. Hathor Wallet Library v0.33.1.

No security issues were found during the inspection. Our engineering team inspected the seed generation process and every interaction with the xpriv inside the wallets. We also confirmed that no sensitive information is ever shared outside the wallet application, including but not limited to the seed, xpriv, passphrase, password, and PIN.

It came to our attention that many users who lost their tokens have shared their seeds across multiple wallets. This is not a good practice and should always be avoided. So we would like to take this opportunity to highlight some best practices to keep your tokens safe:

  1. You should never share seed words between different devices, e.g., mobile, desktop software wallet, and Ledger.
  2. Consider using the Ledger hardware wallet for extra protection. Ledger keeps your seed and private keys stored outside your computer, being the safest choice to protect your tokens.
  3. Consider spreading your assets across multiple wallets or using a passphrase if you have a large portfolio.
  4. If you suspect someone may have gotten access to your wallet, either by using your seed or through a compromised device, immediately transfer your funds to a new wallet.

For more tips to protect your tokens, check Hathor Wallet security best practices.

Respectfully yours,

Hathor Labs
