As you can see, the User Key order is abc.x00....x00, but the key order written is abc?x00?x00.?x05?abc?x00.x00.. x00 x00 x00 x00. sx10. Obviously, after that, we face huge challenges if we want to sweep the data in an orderly manner. User Key needs to be encoded as a result.

Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing a phishing attack, according to the Devi 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 worth about $11.6 million had been stolen from phishing attacks that faked Electrum upgrade tips. DeViable 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 Electrum 3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released, and do not use the link in the prompt to avoid asset losses.
Electrum users are reminded of the Update Tip, which indicates that the new version of Electrum is likely to be fake, and if installed, transfer Bitcoin out in another security environment in a timely manner.
