All About Lightning Electrum
Like Bitcoin's core wallet, Electrum Wallet allows users to control their own funds and private keys.

According to Bleeping Computer, the Bitcoin wallet app Electrom was on GitHub on May 9th, accusing a phishing product called Electrum Pro of stealing a user's seed key and registering a domain name called electrum without Electrum's permission. The Electrum team noted that there was a piece of code indicating that the counterfeit product might have taken the user's seed key and uploaded it to the electrum. Affected users should transfer funds from Bitcoin URLs managed by Eletrum Pro.

Electrum wallets have been hacked in recent days and nearly 250 bitcoins have been stolen, according to blockchain security team Devi Security Labs. This attack, confirmed by Electrum, involves creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is an ongoing phishing attack on Electrum users and advised users to download wallet apps from the official website." Mars Finance reminds users not to install electrum wallets from unknown sources.
By default, electrum wallets are randomly connected to a set of Electrum servers. From a privacy perspective, this is not a good thing because it discloses your wallet address and balance to unknown third parties. And unfortunately, many public Electrum servers are run by individuals or groups of blockchain analytics companies or worse. Therefore, if you are using an Electrum wallet, it is generally recommended that you run your own Electrum server and then connect the wallet to that server.
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.
