All About Lightning Electrum
Electrum Wallet is one of the most popular Bitcoin wallets and has been around for several years.

Planet Daily News Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of supporting multi-signatures and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-sign wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have a "message flaw" that allows an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing for the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may get a trick. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more.
