Bitcoin Wallet providers like Trezor and Electrum.
April 9 (Johnwick.io) reported that hackers had launched a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on the well-known wallet Electrum server. Hackers used a botnet of more than 140,000 computers to attack Electrum's nodes and simultaneously deployed malicious nodes. When a user connects to these malicious nodes and sends a transaction using an older version of Electrum, the user is prompted to update the Backdoor Client. If the user installs the client as prompted, the private key is stolen and all digital assets are lost.
Trezor's official statement on the matter followed coinelegraph's original article, and Trezor issued an official statement confirming that Trezor and Satoshilabs did not attend the Maduro Cryptocurrency Expo in Caracas on November 6. In a blog post detailing Trezorvenezuela as an authorized distributor of Trezor, the company removed Trezor from its list of authorized resellers in June 2019 due to inactive activity. However, Trezor does not restrict Trezorvenezuela from selling Trezor products in any particular region.

Dash releases Dash Electrum 184.108.40.206 version
Popular wallet developer Electrum has released an emergency patch for a key vulnerability in Bitcoin wallets.
Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of multi-signature support and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-signature wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have a message flaw that allows an attacker to send update prompts through a malicious ElectrumX server. This update prompt is very confusing for the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may be tricked. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more. This captured currency theft attack is not stealing the private key (electrum's private key is generally stored with two-factor encryption), but replaces the transfer destination address when the user initiates the transfer. In this slow fog remind users, transfer, need to pay special attention to whether the destination address is replaced, which is a very popular recent way to steal money. It is also recommended that users use hardware wallets such as Ledger, and if you pair it with Electrum, although the private key does not have any security issues, you should also be alert to the replacement of the destination address.
On December 27, Reddit user u/normal_rc reported that Electrum's wallet had been hacked and that nearly 250 bitcoins (243.6 BTCs, nearly $1 million) had been maliciously stolen, coinelegraph reported. Electrum then confirmed that the attack included creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is a persistent phishing attack on Electrum users" and warned users not to download Electrum from any source other than the official website.
