Not paying attention to the software that we install on our computer or mobile system can be another reason for creating security problems. There are some software that, in addition to the services they provide, also have an internal key logger that records everything on the typing device. It can be copied to the temporary memory and a copy of it will be sent to the hacker. Also, we have already had malware that, by installing it, would replace the destination wallet address with the hacker’s wallet address when sending. you should always be extremely careful when installing new software on the device and check that software completely
Providing unlimited access to smart contracts that are used inside the wallet. The way smart contracts work is that the user establishes a p2p connection with the desired blockchain through his wallet and the access that is created inside the wallet. The smart contract creates interaction.
