September 19 (Xinhua) -- Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing a phishing attack, according to the Health 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.

Most of the other wallets interviewed by Bitcoin Magazine also said that if the soft fork is activated, they need to be prepared, at least not too far behind. Ciphrex's mSigna wallet and Ledger hardware wallet have been fully integrated into SegWit. BTC, Blocktrail's predecessor, is delaying the consolidation because it was recently acquired by ASIC maker Bitland, but says it should be completed within weeks. The famous desktop and Android Wallet Electrum will integrate SegWit at the next release, which is expected to be completed by the end of this year. Android and iOS Wallet APP BreadWallet are currently being tested and will be made available to users once the network activates SegWit and is confirmed to be safe. Mycelium Wallet says it has completed some of the complex integrations, leaving only a few user interface issues to solve.

Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing phishing attacks, according to Johnwick.io. 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.
