Yes, I think the cryptocurrency wallet is very likely to be hacked. I'm not talking about certain wallets, but it's about how the security is done by the wallet holder.

Hackers will use every means to hack your wallet, no matter how good the security services offered by a wallet, it will eventually be hacked if the owner does not really maintain security properly.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

I am very interested to know if cryptocurrency wallets like Bitcoin Core, NEON, Electrum can ever be hacked ?

Yes they can be hacked because they are also in digital form like your social media account that requires your email and password or a certain private key. Once these information got leaked or exposed by a hacker, then it's the end of the road of your crypto assets already.

All things can happen, even we often hear stories that many cases of people who lose coins even though they keep it off line wallet, I think hackers always use every means to steal so there is never a safe thing.

No matter how advanced our technology is, we can't still deny the fact that cryptocurrency wallets are also hackable. Preferably on flash drives. And more important not to lose them.

If the machine has no internet access then the internet has no access to it, including hackers. This protects the private key from being stolen by remote hackers. Without the private key, hackers can’t sign fake transactions. If they can’t sign fake transactions, then it will be rejected by miners.

Yes, of course. All wallets can be hacked, no matter how safe your wallet is, if you don't use it carefully it can happen. So you have to be careful, to keep the private key as good as possible, don't let anyone know except ourselves. Hackers have many ideas and ways to hack a wallet.

Bitcoin allows you to transfer anywhere with a very easy way and allows you to control your money. But, The great feature also comes along with high attention to security. It is important to say that there is no absolute security.

I disagree with what you said about crypto wallet been hacked because every wallet that you're holder of it private is a secure wallet and it cant be hack but only if avoid some silly human error which could lead to the exposing the wallet information. In addition, this why people are advice to use metamask, updated wallet version, antivirus and personal computer etc

there are many ways from hackers to find our gap. but as a user we can anticipate it with caution on suspicious webs, so that we don't get carried away to their games, which ultimately results in fatal

We can't deny the fact that anything inside the internet is hackable so we must be responsible for our wallets because hackers and scammers are too wise to hack our earnings which might ruin our crypto life.

Well, all of the things on internet can be hacked as well as cryptocurrency. All we need to do, is to protect our very own wallet, create a strong password, and don't share your wallet to anyone. that's all.

Everything related to the Internet can be harmed by hackers, vius. Everything, if you visit a fake website and provide some information, I'm sure your computer will be hacked, your ETH, NEO, BTC wallets might be hit. Immediately.

I know a person whose wallet got hacked and she was really devastated. I don't know how it happen, my friend too he's wallet got hacked, he though all is well but when he see his wallet he lost everything through phishing site. It happen if you really don't have any double security measure for your wallet.

Yes ,cryptocurrency wallets can be hacked even the almighty etheruem wallet/website get hacked all the time.
The easiest way to get hacked is clicking on every link that comes your way.
We need to be very cautious of our wallets so as to avoid being hacked.
hackers now are very smart, they can developt their technique to attack site security.even we have multy layer security, they still able to break and steal our balance.

No one is safe from the internet, especially if you are a well known person or you are involve in a money trading investment. People will always find a way to know or steal some information regarding on what or who you are, for them to use it against you. E-wallet is not safe from people who are like that, especially if it is lacking of security. Unlike physical wallets, e-wallets are not tangible, simply, they're digitized. In order to access them, you must access it through digital or simply with the use of computer. Computers of today are very prone to hackers, especially if it is lacking of security. So be aware of the sites you are accessing, you might dive in a trap that will cause you everything.
As long as you use the genuine wallets then you will never see any trouble in your life regarding this issue of hacking or being hacked. You should always remember that you have to keep your privacy secure as you are in precious source and your coins will be safer as long as you do not share your password or other information related to your wallet. On the other hand if you become careless in handling your wallet then you should not enter in the circle of precious investments.

Yes, these viruses can be downloaded to your computer that will be revealing your accounts and passwords, the bad thing about that is them knowing your bank accounts and cryptocurrency wallets.

Though saying it, hackers would not be abke to hack your wallets directly. There are still no computer that can do that, though knowing your password and accounts can still be done. You really need to take care of your accounts especially your bank accounts.

for technically it should be very difficult to steal because when you want to enter the currency wallet you usually have to enter using very high encryption but many of those hacked may be due to carelessness.
