In a blog post, Malwarebytes, an antimalware software company, said the number of infected Electrum Bitcoin wallets had reached 152,000 after the server was attacked by DoS, and the total amount of stolen funds had risen to $4.6 million, Cointegraph reported. The company identified a loader called Trojan.BeamWinHTTP, which also involved downloading previously detected Electrum DoSMiner. The largest number of robots are concentrated in Asia Pacific, Brazil and Peru, and botnets are growing to attack Electrum infrastructure.
Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of multi-signature support and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-signature wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have "message defects" that allow an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing to the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may be tricked. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more.
In addition, small partners who have used Electrum wallets should be aware that with Thecret phrase generated by Electrum, we can recover bitcoin keys on any browser using the Bitcoin Wallet web tool. And Electrum is so secure that there is no evidence that the distributed attack prevention system designed by Dark Wallet will be due to Electrum.

Electrum then confirmed that the attack included creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is a persistent phishing attack on Electrum users" and warned users not to download Electrum from any source other than the official website.
