Is this the same kid who hacked the Ledger?
>*”Although nobody has successfully claimed the bounty reward and removed the cryptocurrency from the wallet, there have been many claims that the device can easily be hacked.”*
So it wasn’t hacked and no money was successfully taken.
Yet this thread gets 2,000 upvotes because idiots don’t even bother to read the article.
Says a lot about the low-IQ teenagers who saturate this sub.
Well John’s a hack so this is extra hilarious.
Why does McAfee have any credibility in this space?
Did he get the coins on the wallet? If not, what good is the hack?
I like where’s this kids head is at
So he hacked the device but did not remove $10?
If so then he “failed”.
John McAfee, the Meme Lord
Got it. I think he said that but he meant no coins can be stolen. Truth is he’s a little whacky.
And with so many exchange hacks people losing actual funds. No one has lot a $1 yet on one of these devices.
Plays Doom so it was rooted right? No other way to get it run any other OS. Not exactly hacked?
It’s not hacked if he didn’t get the bitcoins.
He didn’t get the Bitcoins.
He didn’t hack it.
Looks like no one has heard the dead donkey story. Similar stuff so even if pays 250k, the money is already made.
A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.
The next day the farmer drove up and said: “Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey died.”
Kenny replied, “Well then, just give me my money back.”
The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”
Kenny said, “OK, then just unload the donkey.”
The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”
Kenny: “I’m going to raffle him off.”
Farmer: “You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!”
Kenny: “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he is dead.”
A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, “What happened with that dead donkey?”
Kenny: “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a profit of $998.00.”
Farmer: “Didn’t anyone complain?”
Kenny: “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back.”
Anyone notice that after making the hack public, per the rules, Bitfi then complains about making it public. Not good PR. But McAfee marketing is mainly just being loud.
Will McAfee eat his own dick now?
It’s like drawing a chessboard on top of a new ps4 and then saying you’ve successfully hacked it to play custom games.
Either you have no idea what you are talking about or you are intentionally spinning the story to create commotion.
Has anyone actually managed to move funds from a device they don’t have the keys to, though?
I’m not defending their hardware wallet, but installing DOOM on it would be like claiming you got inside of an (allegedly) impenetrable fortress by painting the door a new color.
Is it hacking to wipe all wallet software and upload your own bios to play a game? Did anyone remove any amounts of crypto from the wallet, or just install other things.
He actually did it with task manager
I don’t see how overriding video input from one source to another with hardware constitutes hacking a wallet.
To be fair, no coins were actually hacked… so it wasn’t really a hack.
He took apart the whole wallet pretty much and wired his own source to the screen so…
That’s about as unhackable as McAfee Antivirus is at keeping viruses off a computer
how are you suppose to hack in an open source without the code???? and still you need wifi to access the wallet, I stay with Ledger
It’s 2018 and people still give McAfee their money. Brilliant.
That’s a really misleading title, kind of like claiming a bank is not secure because a kid was skateboarding in the parking lot…
ITS NOT HACKED SINCE THE DID NOT GET THE MONEY FROM IT REEEE!
I suppose that would be McAfees next response.
Who the fuck would buy this over a Ledger?
