Electrum wallets have been hacked in recent days and nearly 250 bitcoins have been stolen, according to blockchain security team Devi Security Labs. This attack, confirmed by Electrum, involves creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is an ongoing phishing attack on Electrum users and advised users to download wallet apps from the official website."
