This attack, confirmed by Electrum, involves creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is an ongoing phishing attack on Electrum users and advised users to download wallet apps from the official website" and that The Healthy Security Lab advised users not to install an unknown source of Electrum wallets to avoid being tricked.

Electrum is another popular Bitcoin wallet that has been around for nearly a decade. Electrum Bitcoin Wallet has been available for all devices since 2011 and was one of the most widely used wallet applications before other alternatives emerged. There are still a lot of people who are still swearing at the Electrum wallet.

The world-renowned Bitcoin wallet Electrum "update phishing" currency theft continues.

Albayrak explained the situation on Reddit. He says he bought a computer in his new office, so he created a new blockchain wallet, hoping to get the money out of his offline wallet (he thinks his offline wallet is a problem)

The Litecoin Foundation announced that it will move from electrum-LTC wallet to multi-purpose signature wallet BitGo.

Reddit user u/normal_rc: 'The attacker set up a lot of malicious servers. Once a user's Electrum wallet is connected to these servers, they see what appears to be an official message when sending bitcoin transactions, telling them to upgrade the Electrum wallet, which actually contains a fraudulent URL.

Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of multi-signature support and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-signature wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have "message defects" that allow an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing to the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may be tricked. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more.

Like Bitcoin's core wallet, Electrum Wallet allows users to control their own funds and private keys. Electrum wallets' private keys can also be exported and used on other supported wallets to access funds. Electrum apps are available for Windows, Linux, OSX and Android, but do not support iOS and browser clients.

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.
