Public blockchain tends to spread information through gossip protocols and flooding. Learning the history of p2p network design, including Napster to Gnutella, BitTorrent, Tor, has some guiding significance. Blockchain has its own characteristics, but it draws on the lessons of these networks and how they are designed.
In a blog post, Malwarebytes, an antimalware software company, said the number of infected Electrum Bitcoin wallets had reached 152,000 after the server was attacked by DoS, and the total amount of stolen funds had risen to $4.6 million, Cointegraph reported. The company identified a loader called Trojan.BeamWinHTTP, which also involved downloading previously detected Electrum DoSMiner. The largest number of robots are concentrated in Asia Pacific, Brazil and Peru, and botnets are growing to attack Electrum infrastructure.
It's not hard to run your own Electrum server and point your wallet to just use it. This restores Electrum to the point where it has the same privacy and security attributes as the full node, where no one else can see the address or transaction that the wallet is interested in. Electrum then becomes an all-node wallet.
