Digital Wallet Electrum was hacked, losing 250 bitcoins.
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.
Vulnerabilities were found in Electrum and Electrum-LTC. It has been fixed in Electrum-LTC 188.8.131.52. If you are running an earlier version, update your software.
