Electrum said in a statement that users need to upgrade, but don't rush to upgrade. It is important not to use older versions of the app, as long as you update to the new version before accessing your wallet.
In December 2018, Slow Fog first discovered and alerted an attacker to a messaging flaw using the Electrum wallet client, forcing an "update prompt" to pop up when a user transfers money, inducing the user to update and download the malware, which in turn commits a currency theft attack. Although electrum officials said in early 2019 that some security mechanisms would be in place to prevent this "update phishing", many users of Electrum are still in the old version (less than 3.3.4) and the old version is still under threat. However, we do not rule out a similar threat to the new version. Recently, slow fog technology anti-money laundering (AML) system through continuous tracking found that one of the attackers wallet address bc1qcygs9dl4pqw6atc4yqurzd76p3r9cp6xp2kny has stolen more than 30 BTC, the crime lasted six months, and recently is still active. We would like to remind Electrum users that the new version of Electrum in this Update Tip is likely to be false and that if installed, transfer Bitcoin out in another security environment in a timely manner. At the same time, we call on the vast number of cryptocurrencies exchanges, wallets and other platforms of the AML wind control system black and monitor such as the above Bitcoin address.
