It's not hard to run your own Electrum server and point your wallet to just use it. This restores Electrum to the point where it has the same privacy and security attributes as the full node, where no one else can see the address or transaction that the wallet is interested in. Electrum then becomes an all-node wallet.
In this demo, Electrum developer Chris Belcher shows how to set up and use electrum personal servers.

When storing private keys and monem memorabs, we all recommend taking data backup offline (copying, printing, etc.) while keeping the backed up content in a safe place.

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.
