Trezor's Response to Ledger's #MITBitcoinExpo Findings
We would like to use this opportunity to address, clarify, and respond to the claims made by Ledger during the #MITBitcoinExpo. Starting off, we would like to highlight the fact that none of these attacks are exploitable remotely. All of the demonstrated attack vectors require physical access to the device, specialized equipment, time, and technical expertise. That is why we believe that these issues are of lower significance for the absolute majority of hardware wallet users. This was confirmed by the recent study carried out in partnership with Binance, where only 5,93% of respondents consider physical attack as the biggest threat to their cryptocurrencies, compared to 66% of respondents that stated that they consider remote attacks as a primary threat. These 5,93% can be protected by using passphrase, which covers the physical security of both the device and the recovery seed.

[PSA] Non-genuine Trezor One devices spotted. Trezor Blog
?Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. you have probably heard this proverb before. We have experienced it first-hand, as Trezor clones have been released over the years of our activity. However, in recent weeks, we have discovered something more startling. A one-to-one copy of Trezor One. In other words, a fake Trezor device, manufactured by a different, unknown vendor. While Trezor clones are marketed under a different name, manufactured by (legitimate) legal companies, allowing you to distinguish them from the original, a fake Trezor tries to replicate the original to the bone. It seeks to be as indistinguishable from the original as possible. It is not dissimilar to counterfeit brand clothing.

Trezor Wallet Bitcoin Cash November 2018 Hard Fork They will follow the Bitcoin ABC chain (PRO ABC!!)
The Bitcoin Cash blockchain undergoes a hard fork quite regularly, about twice a year, to integrate scheduled protocol upgrades. So far, these hard forks went unnoticed as they were consensual. However, this time the BCH developer community did not come to a consensus regarding the future of BCH. If you are a Trezor user with bitcoin cash holdings, there are a couple of things you should be aware of regarding the hard fork: Thank you for your understanding. For up-to-date information, please follow our Twitter feed: Trezor Trezor Model T is the next-generation hardware wallet, designed with experiences of the original Trezor in mind, combined with a modern and intuitive interface for improved user experience and security. It features a touchscreen, faster processor, and advanced coin support, as well as all the features of the Trezor One.

Firmware updates 2.0.9 and 1.7.1
Time flies fast, and we are ready to bring you yet another firmware update to keep our services in the best possible shape. You have much to look forward to. There is something special about this update though it is indeed a community-driven firmware update. A lot of the changes coming in this package have been implemented by external contributors, part of the Trezor Community, to whom we are immensely thankful. Added support for Monero, Cardano, Stellar, Ripple, Tezos, Decred, Groestlcoin, Lisk, Zencash, and Zcash Sapling hardfork. Yes, that's right. The new Trezor Model T firmware now supports all of these coins. Nothing now stands in the way of developers of the respective cryptocurrencies or other third-party developers to implement Trezor integrations with their wallets and some of them already have! Let's look at the added coins more closely:

Security updates in Trezor One (firmware 1.7.1)
On Monday October 29th, we released the firmware update 1.7.1 for Trezor One devices. Besides functional improvements, it contains security fixes for two related issues that we learned of on September 26th and October 24th, respectively. Due to defensive techniques present in the firmware, the memory corruption triggered by both vulnerabilities activates a controlled shutdown of the Trezor One. This prevents a more dangerous outcome. Consequently, these issues only represent a remote denial of service attack which does not impact the security of the stored data. Please note that several other vendors are also affected by these issues in different ways, which significantly influenced our disclosure process.

Trezor Password Manager All Your Passwords in a Safe Place
Modern life revolves around social media websites, cloud storages, encrypted email accounts and countless online services requiring their users to set up their login details and passwords. Navigating in this space in a secure way is a challenge that we all have to face. Based on research done at the University of Cambridge, roughly one third of people use the same credentials for multiple websites. This means that if one of your accounts gets compromised, all of them are compromised as well. A skilled and malicious person could, therefore, steal all your data and your online identity at once. Many websites require strong passwords composed of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters. It can get pretty difficult to come up with a strong-enough password every time you register somewhere.

You can now seamlessly exchange between different cryptocurrencies inside Trezor Wallet
Usability, convenience, safety these have been our priorities ever since we released the first Trezor and continued to be our goals with the Model T. Of course, we do not just stop short there. This ethos is applied across the services we provide, including the web-interface for the Trezors, the popular Trezor Wallet. Therefore, it is with excitement that we announce the release of Exchanges to the Trezor Wallet today, making the Wallet more versatile and useful than ever before. Starting today, you can seamlessly exchange between different cryptocurrencies without ever needing to leave the Wallet site. The entire exchange process can be initiated and observed directly in the Wallet interface.

When it comes to your coins, keep it quiet. Trezor Blog
Have you ever heard the saying Silence is golden In the context of cryptocurrencies, being quiet about your funds will not bring you gold, but it might just save your coins. Let's suppose that you have invested a lot of money in cryptocurrencies, or that your investments have paid off and your cryptocurrency funds have multiplied. Obviously, you are pleased about it, and you want to share your success story with other people, so you post a comment about it on Facebook or Reddit. A random reader of your post might then decide that he or she really wants your riches and starts using a variety of malicious tactics to get them. These might include cyber attacks or even physical violence. (You would be surprised how much information can be mined from your social media, including your physical location.)

PSA Phishing Warning: Trezor Wallet Website
Late night yesterday, our Support Team started receiving inquiries about an invalid SSL certificate, which serves as a stamp of authenticity of our web services. This can happen for a few reasons, some of which are less serious. Unfortunately, after investigating these reports closer, we found out that the invalid certificate warning appeared because of phishing attempts against Trezor users. The fake Trezor Wallet website was served to some users who attempted to access wallet.trezor.io the legitimate address. We do not yet know which attack vector was used, but the signs point toward DNS poisoning or BGP hijacking.

Lambos are so 2017. Get a TREZOR Scooter instead!
Mobility defines the world today. In its fast-paced nature, we need to be at many places at the same time, shuffling our schedules around just to make it with an acceptable delay.

Fortunately, we came up with a solution which combines all of these speed, security, and technology. Introducing the TREZOR Scooter. A unique fusion of a convenient travel companion for the city a scooter, a secure hardware wallet, and blockchain! Why, you ask Let us answer directly with these simple case scenarios:

TREZOR One: Firmware Update 1.6.1
Today, on March 21st, we have released a new security update for TREZOR One devices. This update patches a physical security issue discovered in mid-February through our responsible disclosure program. There is no evidence that this vulnerability has been used in practice. Nonetheless, the new system will also verify the integrity of your TREZOR device, making sure it is safe to use. The TREZOR Wallet interface will offer the firmware update for your TREZOR One. Please make sure you have your recovery seed nearby before starting the update process. The vulnerability described below affects the supply chain of TREZOR One devices primarily. If your TREZOR One is already initialized and set up, then you are likely not affected. If you just purchased your TREZOR One device, make sure that you install/update the latest firmware version before using it.

Announcing a redesigned interface for your TREZOR Wallet
In our quest to make TREZOR as friendly as possible, we are continuously striving to bring you new updates and new improvements. Today, we are happy to introduce a redesigned brighter and cleaner TREZOR Wallet, to better your experience with your daily wallet interface. Let's have a look at both the surface and underlying changes! The first thing you will surely notice is that TREZOR Wallet has ditched the darker colors for a new, brighter palette. Dark greys are replaced by lighter variants, black shades have been withdrawn, and in their stead, you will see whites. Highlights such as green and red, like those in the balance graph, are better visible and pop out vividly from the new background.
