Electrum wallet users lost 771 BTCs in the last six months as a result of phishing attacks.
Electrum - Lightweight Bitcoin client.
This "update tip" is not an official act of Electrum, but a phishing attack by an attacker that exploits a message flaw on the Electrum client and the ElectrumX server, which requires the attacker to deploy the malicious ElectrumX server in advance, and the malicious server is localized by the user's Electrum client (because the Electrum client is a light wallet and the user needs the ElectrumX server to broadcast the transaction). In a frenzy, malicious ElectrumX servers account for as many as 71% of the total, and the show doesn't fully count, and hundreds of bitcoins have been stolen in this phishing attack over the past year or so.
According to Johnwick.io, we will continue to monitor and track the further flow of funds after a recent user submitted a coin-losing incident claiming that the download used an Electrum wallet had been phishing and that more than 700 bitcoins had been lost, and that the stolen address had been added to the Devi AML system. It is reported that malicious websites (electrumsecure) fake Electrum website phishing attacks, to guide users to download and use the wallet, in order to steal the user's private key and other sensitive data. Devi Security Labs is here to remind users not to install unknown sources of Electrum wallets, to avoid asset losses.

93% of the exchanges sampled received ETH. These exchanges require an average of 18 Ethernet block confirmations (3.9 minutes) and a median of 12 (3 minutes). Two exchanges have the most conservative top-up methods, Independent Reserve and Liquid. Both exchanges require 50 confirmations, which means that the user will have to wait about 11 minutes for the user to top up, while the hacker will need about $11,000 to reverse the transaction. The lowest number of confirmations required to top up is Bitfinex, with 5 confirmations (1 minute) Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
