The world-renowned Bitcoin wallet Electrum "update phishing" currency theft continues.
Star Daily News Bitcoin Wallet Electrum official Twitter announced that the next version of Electrum will support Lightning online payments. Its lightning node implementation has been consolidated into the main branch of Electrum. Electrum also confirmed that the wallet will adopt a new implementation of in-house development written using Python. (Cointelegraph)
In recent days, hackers or hacker groups have stolen more than 200 bitcoins worth about $750,000 by attacking the infrastructure of electrum Bitcoin wallets. The attacker is targeting Electrum.
We can then further suggest that the operation of the Co-governance Committee should be at least twofold, one is that the COC should deal with those things that cannot be accomplished alone, and the other is that the COC should operate as transparently as possible to facilitate participation.
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.
Why use Electrum? Here are a dozen of the benefits of electrum wallets.
In a recent announcement on Twitter, Electrum advised users to disable the automatic connection option and manually select a server, while the company is developing a more powerful Electrum.
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 a message flaw that allows an attacker to send update prompts through a malicious ElectrumX server. This update prompt is very confusing for 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. This captured currency theft attack is not stealing the private key (electrum's private key is generally stored with two-factor encryption), but replaces the transfer destination address when the user initiates the transfer. Slow fog reminds users that when transferring money, special attention needs to be paid to whether the destination address is replaced, which is a very popular method of currency theft recently. It is also recommended that users use hardware wallets such as Ledger, and if you pair it with Electrum, although the private key does not have any security issues, you should also be alert to the replacement of the destination address.
Bitcoin Wallet Electrum has released the official version of 4.0, adding features such as Lightning Network and PSBT.
