Electrum Bitcoin wallet still plagued by known crypto phishing attack
This post was originally published on this siteThis post was originally published on this site Two Electrum software wallet users have recently reported the loss of large sums of Bitcoin (BTC). One victim described the disappearance of 1,400 BTC, totaling $14,595,000 at press time, while another claimed 36.5 BTC, worth $380,512, as stolen. The events appear connected to a long-standing phishing scam […]
Switching from empire to CH. Electrum wants me to type in mBTC. CH is giving my my total with some extra zeros. It seems like anyway I try to type it in I either get not enough funds(not really) or I send way to little. Trying to complete this order thanks
past week installed the new plugin that allow me to connect my electrum wallet to bitcoin-core, i use a hardware wallet and worked like a charm. Then today was updating the node and used bitcoin-qt instead of bitcoind and when was waiting suddendly i see some text in the gui where it says "recent transactions", and a lot of transactions where there. Then was like WTF happened here, someone stole my btc?, or installed a compromised version of electrum(i use archlinux and install from the repos). Why some transactions where there, i neved imported my wallet to bitcoin-gui. Inmediately deleted the wallet.dat and did the same in electrum, but my question is: Was something imported into bitcoin-qt?, all my history was redeable from the gui, i never imported into bitcoin-qt, and as far i know the seed never leave the hardware wallet. This is normal?, at least all my funds are still there but im really worried. PS: everything happened with my hardwallet unplugged. TL:DR: Connected my cold wallet to electrum(connected to bitcoind) past week, never to bitcoin-qt, today opened bitcoin-qt and all my history of transactions from my cold wallet(unplugged) was there(bitcoin-qt), is this normal?.
Is there something wrong with the adress below? https://electrum.tools/index.html#download Because here we can already find the electrum 4.0, and my "Electrum app" is requesting update for this version.... Is it phishing?
Just a warning about the electrum bitcoin wallet on debian sid
I installed electrum from the repository today and when I tried to send some bitcoin I received an extremely convincing pop-up in the client with pictures and everything saying that my client was out of date and that I needed to visit the site to update. Of course the site linked was electrum.la as opposed to the official electrum.org. Luckily I noticed this pretty fast, but this is definitely one of the most advanced phishing schemes I have seen to date. The electrum package seriously needs updating, I even found a bug report about it from 3 months that hasn't been resolved. Over $3m has been stolen using this phishing scheme and that number is increasing every day. tl;dr install electrum from source on the official site, do NOT use the package right now
