Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing phishing attacks, according to Johnwick.io. Hackers broadcast messages to electrum clients through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user is prompted to install this backdoor-carrying client, the private key is stolen and all digital assets are stolen. At the time of writing, at least 1,450 BTCs worth approximately $11.6 million had been stolen from phishing attacks that forged Electrum upgrade alerts. Devi Security Labs hereby suggests that versions of Electrum below 3.3.4 are vulnerable to such phishing attacks, and users using Electrum Wallet are requested to update to the latest version of Electrum3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released v4.0.0, and do not use the link in the prompt message to avoid asset losses.

Bitcoin SV clients are short-lived and have limited time from the idea to the time the version goes online, and it is unrealistic to want miners to run such a hasty client with their own mine, at least until the Bitcoin ABC client has officially activated the modifications.
