Some wallets, such as Coinomi, Electrum, and Wasabi, use this new format directly.
B: Electrum server can customize messages to appear in the user's electrum light wallet software, giving hackers a chance to broadcast phishing messages.
Since the end of December 2018, Bitcoin wallet Electrum users have lost 771 BTCs (worth about $4 million) in phishing attacks, according to a study released by Malwarebytes Labs. Electrum is known to implement a variant of a technology called Simplified Payment Verification (SPV), which allows users to send and receive transactions without having to download a full copy of the Bitcoin blockchain. An attacker is exploiting a vulnerability that anyone can manipulate a public Electrum peer to carry out an attack. (TNW)
Electrum hackers pre-empted a large number of "normal" electrum servers on the P2P network.

In this demo, Electrum developer Chris Belcher shows how to set up and use electrum personal servers.
Electrum Wallet is one of the most popular Bitcoin wallets and has been around for several years. However, Electrum wallet users often rely on electrum servers, which presents some security and privacy trade-offs. If you use an Electrum personal server, Electrum wallet users can connect locally to their own private servers, enjoying the convenience of Electrum without any trade-offs.
In the end, you've completed your first transaction with the Electrum Wallet.
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.
To use mnomets to transfer addresses from electrum wallets to web wallets, you need to set Electrum to be compatible with Qtum phone mnomets in the initial installation (and then use phone wallet mnomets to restore phone wallets on Electrum). This setting is screenshot of the Electrum configuration.
