Electrum is outdated and cannot connect to servers

Electrum in Tails cannot connect anymore to Electrum servers.

The version of Electrum in Tails is vulnerable to a phishing attack that tricks people in updating to a malicious version of Electrum which is not distributed from the official Electrum website.

You are safe unless you try to do the malicious update manually.

To prevent this phishing attack, all trustworthy Electrum servers now prevent older versions from connecting to them.

Unfortunately, newer versions of Electrum are not available in Debian and cannot be integrated easily in Tails. Given the lack of maintenance of Electrum in Debian, we are still assessing what is best to do in Tails.

Until then, your wallet is not lost and you can restore it from its seed using an up-to-date version of Electrum outside of Tails.

Tails fails to start a second time on some computers (#16389)

On some computers, after installing Tails to a USB stick, Tails starts a first time but fails to start a second time. In some cases, only BIOS (Legacy) was affected and the USB stick was not listed in the Boot Menu.

We are still investigating the issue, so if it happens to you, please report your findings by email to tails-testers@boum.org. Mention the model of the computer and the USB stick. This mailing list is archived publicly.

To fix this issue:

  1. Reinstall your USB stick using the same installation method.

  2. Start Tails for the first time and set up an administration password.

  3. Choose Applications ▸ System Tools ▸ Root Terminal to open a Root Terminal.

  4. Führen Sie folgenden Befehl aus:

    sgdisk --recompute-chs /dev/bilibop

You can also test an experimental image:

  1. Download the .img file from our development server.

  2. Install it using the same installation methods.

    We don't provide any OpenPGP signature or other verification technique for this test image. Please only use it for testing.
