Hi. So this question is really eating at the back of my brain. What does provably secure really mean? And what is the scope of provably secure? Is it the entire Cardano eco-system? I have read up on it but I don’t quite understand the limitations and scope of provably secure when it comes to Cardano, cardano nodes, Ada, and the Deadaulus wallet. I have done some reading, watched videos etc… and I understand the Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provable_security
What I am really interested in is how secure is the Daedalus wallet? Can a hacker get into my private key?
So here is the scenario:
Let’s say I practice good computer security with a virus scanner always on and I don’t click on strange links. I don’t open emails which I don’t know the sender. But computers can still get viruses like keystroke loggers and screen captures, and into the file system.
If a hacker never gets to my private key or my 12 word seed, how can a hacker break into the wallet or steal coins? I am not talking about exchanges here, just the wallet. I never type my private key, and I never type my seed when I use Daedalus. Are there weaknesses? Can hackers use online identities to punch a hole in the Daedalus wallet on my home computer? Can a hacker steal the private key from the file system?
Thanks for any insight!
