All About Lightning Electrum
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.
Electrum tweeted today about the incident, saying it was "a persistent phishing attack on Electrum users" and imploring users to check the effectiveness of the resources they log on to.

Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing a phishing attack, according to the Dev Security Lab. Hackers broadcast messages to the Electrum client through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user follows the prompt 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 (stolen by one user, antimalware firm Malwarebytes and Electrum) had been stolen in phishing attacks that faked Thelectrum upgrade tips, with a total value of about $11.6 million. It is worth mentioning that less than version 3.3.4 of Electrum is vulnerable to such phishing attacks, users using electrum wallets are requested to update to the latest version of Electrum 3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released v4.0.0, please do not use the link in the prompt message to update to avoid loss of assets.

Electrum is a popular software wallet that works by connecting to a dedicated server. These servers receive a hash of the Bitcoin address in the wallet and reply with transaction information. Electrum Wallet is fast and has few resources, but by default, it connects to these servers and can easily monitor users. In addition to Electrum, some other software uses public Electrum servers.
