USBKill

USBKill Crypto Wallet Test Results

Hardware Crypto Wallets are used to store crypto-money assets - they are quite literally an electronic safe - holding all of your crypto assets inside. If a wallet is lost or destroyed without a backup, access to crypo-assets is permanently lost.
USBKill recommends keeping your electronic crypto-safes locked inside a physical one (but not the same one with your backup codes..)
After testing the Trezor One, Trezor T, Ledger Nano X, Ledger Nano S and the CoolWallet - the only device not vulnerable is the CoolWallet - because it has no attackable port.
