  • Can we trust software wallets?
    This risk also applies to open source wallet apps https://bitpay.com/blog/npm-package-vulnerability-copay/ https://github.com/bitpay/wallet/issues/9346 That wallet had deep dependencies on modules in the Node javascript repository. One of the dependency packages had been abandoned by its maintainer, transfered to a new maintainer who volunteered. The new maintainer exploited his ownership of this little piece of code, and the fact that the copay wallet was dependent on it. He added some extra code to steal Bitcoin from wallet owners and send it to himself If the open source package repository is loosely managed, allowing malicious coders to take over existing projects, and the code dependency tree is complicated, it is unlikely that any code reviewers' eyes are looking for this type of bug before the victims lose their coins Some might advise to avoid javascript coded wallet apps, but deep dependency trees are ubiquitous in modern software. A Debian repository would be safer than a Node repository, but it would still be possible for a malicious coder to take over an existing package in Debian. They're always looking for volunteers
