I am looking for some expert level help in answering a hypothetical.
When you install the Daedalus wallet on your computer it creates a folder to hold a bunch of files, just like any other program does. Is it possible to restore a wallet using only these files and NOT the backup seed?
The hypothetical situation is this:
A malicious virus infected my computer, copied the Daedalus system folder and sent it to someone else. The bad actor then uses the Daedalus system folder to restore a wallet and proceed to steal my ADA by transferring them to a new address.
Is this possible?
The reason why I am asking is because, I remember reading about a member in this forum who lost his password and seed to his Daedalus wallet but since the wallet was already installed on his computer. This person was able to use his Daedalus system folder files to restore this account.
I am looking not for opinions, but I want to see what the devs have to say. True or False.
If it is possible, the community needs to be made aware so we can protect from this possible attack.
Thanks in advance.
BTW, I love Cardano.
