Ledger, a cryptocurrency wallet manufacturer, recently published a report in which it warned its customers of a security flaw which affects all of its devices.

The company tweeted last Saturday that all hardware wallets were found to be susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks in which an attacker can redirect the funds to his address if a user generates a bitcoin wallet address using a computer affected by malware.

Ledger advised customers to use an undocumented feature in their hardware wallets where they can confirm if the address is correct by clicking on the monitor button at the bottom left of the “Receive Bitcoins” menu.
