Hackers new tactic to steal crypto over from the users of a popular bitcoin wallet



Admins of popular Bitcoin wallet, Electrum, are warning users of a phishing attack that tricks its users into downloading a malicious update that steals their password codes. According to ZDNet, these hackers added tens of malicious servers to Electrum' wallet network which, when triggered, prompts users to download a wallet update containing malicious code. Users of this updated version will be asked to enter their 2-factor authentication code, which the hackers will use to access their wallet—emptying their balance. Hackers were able to steal over 200 bitcoins, approximately $730k at the time of this writing.

According to ZDNet, the core issue for Electrum is that it allows "popups with custom text" to trigger in a user's wallet interface.  This enables attackers to get direct access to their victim's interface and render authentic-looking server messages like the one below.



According to Electrum's developers, these attacks began on December 21 and while the developers have taken down the hacker's GitHub repository, which contains the malicious code, they have yet to patch the main attack vector. Developers warn that another attack may soon be underway.

“Privacy is Luxury” 

The DigitalBank Vault Encryption System provides total privacy and secrecy

that is so much needed nowadays.   

 

You enjoy zero privacy currently, whatever app you are using and believe they are safe to be used, like all types of end to end encrypted solutions that should give you the confidentiality you need, all those apps are absolutely not secure. 

You always download an app and let it access all the data on your smartphone.

You permit a cyber weapon in the form of spyware, to legally assault

your most confidential information.

Today in cybersecurity and cyber defense you need to trust “No One”.

DO NOT TRUST ANY TYPE OF 'SECURE/ENCRYPTED COMMUNICATION DEVICE"

Who is the supplier of the hardware device? How do you know if it is 'clean' or has some backdoor in it that connects to the hacker's servers? 

 

Nobody, make no mistakes about it, no third party is trustable.

 

You have to trust only yourself.

Give to others the keys to your top classified information?

 

Believe Nothing.

How comes that NO documents of Russian Oligarchs are ever leaked to the net?

How they secure their classified databases, communications, and file transfers?

Celebs Trust Nobody.

So how Celebs store their most guarded secrets?

How they secure sensitive data transfers?

What Secret App Celebs are using for securing their privacy?

 

TRUST NOBODY!

According to a recent Gartner report,

the majority of data breaches and cyberattacks exploit third-party cyber gaps.

50 % of companies experienced a significant data breach through a third-party vendor.
