Bitcoin wallet service Company Electrum has been hacked, resulting in the loss of user funds. In response to the attack, Beosin Chengdu Chain Security made an analysis: This wallet Electrum was attacked, mainly because the use of the kivy framework is using a standard py compiler and wallet does not do anti-secondary packaging protection, the core file can be directly recompiled back to the py file.

Electrum posted a message about the incident on Twitter today, claiming that "there are currently phishing attacks against Electrum users" and imploring users to check the validity of their login information.
