In a recent announcement on Twitter, Electrum advised users to disable the automatic connection option and manually select a server, while the company is developing a more powerful Electrum.
Bitcoin desktop wallet client Electrum has released a 4.0 beta version, adding several important updates, including support for the Lightning network, nearly a year after the previous version of Electrum, 3.3.8 (last July). In the 4.0 beta version, Electrum mainly added features such as PSBT (partially signed Bitcoin transactions), Lightning Network, watchtowers (暸 watchtowers) and Submarineswaps (subliminal switching).

Electrum - Lightweight Bitcoin client.
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.
