When an Electrum wallet queries a third-party Electrum server, the server can link two transactions together and know which address is a zero address.
According to The Next Web, the attackers even implemented their own Electrum servers, which hosted the attacked Electrum.
Electrum posted a message about the incident on Twitter today, claiming that "there are currently phishing attacks against Electrum users" and imploring users to check the validity of their login information.
According to Bleeping Computer, the BTC wallet app Electrom accused a phishing product called Electrum Pro of stealing a user's seed key on May 9 on GitHub and registering a domain name called electrum without Electrum's permission. The Electrum team noted that there was a piece of code indicating that the counterfeit product might have taken the user's seed key and uploaded it to the electrum. Affected users should transfer funds from BTC URLs managed by Eletrum Pro.
A clone site masquerading as an Electrum SV wallet has emerged. The cloning site has nothing to do with electrum SV and is designed to steal tokens and create chaos in the BSV community. Most interestingly, although the clone site claims to be a BSV wallet, it is full of links to BCH resources, including the Electron Cash (BCH Wallet) library on GitHub.
According to Reddit user u/normal_rc, electrum's wallet was hacked and nearly 250 bitcoins (243.6 BTCs, nearly $1 million) were maliciously stolen, according to coinelegraph. 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.
According to the dimensionality reduction security laboratory (johnwick.io), hackers launched a denial of service (DoS) attack on the well-known wallet Electrum server.
