Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing a phishing attack, according to the Devi Security Lab. Hackers broadcast messages to the Electrum client through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user follows the prompt to install this "backdoor-carrying client", the private key is stolen and all digital assets are stolen. At the time of writing, at least 1,450 BTCs worth about $11.6 million had been stolen from phishing attacks that faked Electrum upgrade tips. DeViable Security Labs hereby suggests that versions of Electrum below 3.3.4 are vulnerable to such phishing attacks, and users using Electrum Wallet are requested to update to the latest version of Electrum 3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released, and do not use the link in the prompt to avoid asset losses.
In a forum post on Bitcointalk, website administrator Theymos explained: "If at any time in the past you've logged in to Electrum without a wallet password and opened a web page, your wallet might have been stolen." Particularly paranoid people may want to send all bitcoins (BTCs) from their old Electrum wallets to the newly generated Electrum wallet. "

According to Johnwick.io, we will continue to monitor and track the further flow of funds after a recent user submitted a coin-losing incident claiming that the download used an Electrum wallet had been phishing and that more than 700 bitcoins had been lost, and that the stolen address had been added to the Devi AML system. It is reported that malicious websites (electrumsecure) fake Electrum website phishing attacks, to guide users to download and use the wallet, in order to steal the user's private key and other sensitive data. Devi Security Labs is here to remind users not to install unknown sources of Electrum wallets, to avoid asset losses.
