Kraken Security Labs gives the following advice to Trezor wallet users:

Do not allow anyone physical access to your Trezor wallet. You could permanently lose your crypto

Enable Your BIP39 Passphrase with the Trezor Client. This passphrase is a bit clunky to use in practice but is not stored on the device and therefore is a protection that prevents this attack.

Have your say!
