Nope, fucking scary actually.
But it seems not Trezors fault, the STM32 micro misbehaves when it is voltage "glitched".
Basically the device is useless as hardware wallet without replacement, except when the seed is protected by a BIP39 passphrase (which is what Kraken recommends as fix/cure).

^ Krakens blog article is really very detailed and well written. You need only a minimal electronic understanding to reproduce the attack. (<- Meaning the crims will be up to speed quickly).

On the positive side, it means that people who have forgotten their trezor pin can now get access to their bitcoins.

There has been a fierce battle between Coronavirus and Porn for supremacy in google searches over the last 7 days. Coronavirus is winning right now but appears to have peaked and about to cede to King Porn.

The fate of humanity is at stake.

Apparently most of the internet. I had read porn was the most googled word, but it seems thats wrong and some words like News and Facebook are a bit higher.

Sorry gents, false alarm. Humanity is SAFU, people across the world still prefer googling Facebook over Coronavirus. Spending hours a day looking at pics of each others food is still the top priority. Carry on.

Deribit to Launch Daily BTC Options as Regulated Competition Heats Up

Quote
Deribit announced this week it would begin offering daily bitcoin index options Feb. 3. Scheduled every day at 08:00 UTC, users will be able to begin trading options at a strike price of $125. Contracts expire two days after being listed.

The exchange will try to offer contracts that move within a 5 percent range around at-the-money (ATM) levels, Deribit's post said. The news gives traders a much wider range of expiry dates, and the platform will now have contracts that expire every day.

"These short-dated expiries are specifically interesting for investors and traders with a short-term view based on for example macroeconomic data or events," the post reads. Deribit's chief communication officer, Luuk Strijers, told CoinDesk the exchange had introduced daily options in response to "market demand."

People who google "porn" or "facebook" are simply just too lazy to type up the actual domain names, and most likely have google as the default search engine that takes over when you type anything but a URL in their browser.

Not a new exploit just old rehased FUD, use a passphrase (like we all do) and have to be able to defend from physical attacks.

Passphrase? Yet another password to lose/forget.
Seriously, though, if you already have corn on Trezor without a passphrase, then wouldn't adding passphrase simply create another wallet/account on the same Trezor?
If so, you would have to make an additional step of transferring corn from OLD (no passphrase) account to NEW (with passphrase) account.
Am I correct or not?

Yes, that is correct. You could leave some corn on the unpassworded wallet as decoy, while no one else would know about the wallet with the passphrase.

There are still reasons to use hardware wallets, and remember, they still need physical access to the device.

If they have physical access to you (and that includes any member of your family), then no passphrase is going to protect your corns.

Great and inspiring find, V8 - it looks like it might be the killer app... the Bitcoin VISA.

Sure it's early days, and I know it's not people having Bitcoin and spending it as we might idealise - but I think this rocks.  I get LN, but I haven't found any real reason I want to use it.  With this everyone just might and be linked to Mr Nakamoto's beautiful idea without even knowing it.

May be very early days. I signed up for the beta and still have not heard back but indeed could be a killer app if it takes hold.

Such an interesting family the Mallers.  Jack's grandfather was the Chairman of the CBOE.  In the above article that's probably Jack's mom buying a joint with her (step?) son's app. Lol.

Worth a listen:

Wise words and I mostly agree with everything you said. Enough of thread hijack I guess.

Let's just fucking moon (ie: $50K-$100K) sometime during the next 5 years and just fuck all this philosophy about "need"... It won't probably be that easy though.

As The Dude would say: Going to HODLsleep now Tongue

I think philosophy that is kind of based on how much we expect the BTC price to go up.. or if it does not is pretty damned relevant to this thread, and it surely would seem that $50k to $100k is doable within the next 5 years... even though we know that we have to prepare for worser case scenarios.. such as flat for five years or even worse, but Up seems slightly greater odds than flat or down.. especially if we are in the 5-ish years ballpark of expectations...

With bitcoin, one thing is how much up, and another thing is what is the sustainability aspect... so the down after up portion of it.

By the way, I seem to be kind of repeating myself (what else is new?), but I am thinking that our odds for the bottom of $6,425 bottom being in might even be getting above 50/50...

Remember we had a $3,124 bottom, and then people were worried about sub-$5k.. which also seems to becoming less and less likely that we are going to see sub $5k.. ... and gosh-golly.. maybe $6,425 is looking greater likelihoods of being in...

I know, I know, I know, we were just at $7,175 at new years, so that is only 30 days ago.

It would NOT be outrageous to go back to $7,175 and retest it, but even that $7,175 does not have to be retested in order to be able to go up...   We do not have to have down before UP... we could have Up before down... or up before more up.... . (not counting staying above $9k as being significantly enough to be labelled as "down" in my own chosen definition of what is "down").

I do believe that it would be quite unlikely to break through $10k and to stay above $10k without getting some down.. so there is that, too.
TLDR: Buried in my boring text walls I like to make price predictions all the time, with probabilities, caveats, disclaimers, and more.

I have a Salty Cunt disease that ironically makes me cry little bot tears when someone like Slayer makes an accurate prediction as he does here and there(end of bear market Dec. 17, Bargain Boyz buy zone). I will accuse these people of wanting to be Gods or Sorcerers. Obviously anyone who isnt retarded will see the absurdity of such accusations.

If anyone makes a prediction with too much certitude be it bearish or bullish I will cry and my blood pressure will rise. I cant help being such a hypocrite, but Slayer is kindly helping me work on this.

Its okay little JJG bot. Dont be so hard on your little "selfie". In a sense you are kind of a God yourself so cheer up.

You always wanted to be interesting but you bored everyone you tried to entertain. However as a persistent little bot you discovered a secret. You can type boring walls of text so often that its actually interesting how boring and long you make them.

This makes you a God and Sorcerer like you always wanted. The God of Boredom.  

All Hail the Mighty JJG Boredom Bot Cheesy

I also agree with him that if we keep going in this channel, it will not be possible to buy bitcoin cheaper for a long time. looks like btc price was tangent to the bottom wall of the channel.

I was just reading about this on twitter while V8s was posting it. He is fast with the new stuff, respect.

TLDR: Researchers are claiming China created the outbreak by combining HIV with a coronavirus and we are all gonna catch Aids-Flu.

Thanks China.
