electrum equipment, Electrum at a Glance

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.

electrum segwit2x, r electrum

There are growing signs that the Segwit2x hard fork may not happen in November this year. Following the withdrawal of F2Pool's support for Segwit2x, BTCC seems to be launching. There is no signal to support Segwit2x in several consecutive blocks mined by the BTCC mining pool. This sign is quite tricky. It is still unclear how this will affect Segwit2x, but as the deadline is getting closer, Segwit2x seems to be slowly collapsing.
