Bitcoin Wallet Electrum confirms a phishing attack against its users, reminding them not to download Electrum Wallet software from any channel other than the official website. Earlier media reports said Electrum users had maliciously stolen millions of dollars worth of cryptocurrencies. Hackers create Electrum wallet software with malicious code, induce users to download, and trick users into providing login information such as passwords to commit theft.
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.
However, after electrum officials said in early 19th that some security mechanisms should be put in place to prevent this "update phishing", many users of Electrum are still in the old version.
Bitcoin Wallet Electrum has released a beta version of Electrum 4.0, which supports the Lightning Network.

In August-September, Bitcoin wallet Electrum was hacked twice, and according to multiple sources, at least 1,450 BTCs worth $11.6 million were stolen from phishing attacks that faked Electrum upgrade tips.
The Electrum team has announced the attack in an official tweet, saying that "this is an ongoing phishing attack on Electrum users" and reminding users to check the authenticity of the client's source before logging in. The team published its official website, and electrum clients downloaded elsewhere may be problematic.
Electrum Wallet is one of the most popular Bitcoin wallets and has been around for several years. However, Electrum wallet users often rely on Electrum servers, which presents some security and privacy trade-offs. If you use electrum personal servers, Electrum wallet users can connect locally to their own private servers, enjoying the convenience of Electrum without any trade-offs.
