Popular wallet developer Electrum has released an emergency patch for a key vulnerability in its Bitcoin wallet. The vulnerability allows any website hosting electrum wallets to potentially steal a user's cryptocurrency. A vulnerability means that the password is exposed to the JSONRPC interface, implying that the hacker has full control over the wallet. The first patch failed to fix the problem, forcing Electrum to release a second update on Sunday night.
It's not hard to run your own Electrum server and point your wallet to just use it. This restores Electrum to the point where it has the same privacy and security attributes as the full node, where no one else can see the address or transaction that the wallet is interested in. Electrum then becomes an all-node wallet.

By default, electrum wallets are randomly connected to a set of Electrum servers. From a privacy perspective, this is not a good thing because it discloses your wallet address and balance to unknown third parties. And unfortunately, many public Electrum servers are run by individuals or groups of blockchain analytics companies or worse. Therefore, if you are using an Electrum wallet, it is generally recommended that you run your own Electrum server and then connect the wallet to that server.
