All About Lightning Electrum
Earlier this month, Electrum detected a DoS attack on its network, allegedly launched by a malicious botnet with more than 140,000 machines, designed to provide Electrum to users.
One of electrum Bitcoin's most popular wallets first appeared around 2011.
On December 27, Reddit user u/normal_rc reported that Electrum's wallet had been hacked and that nearly 250 bitcoins (243.6 BTCs, nearly $1 million) had been maliciously stolen, coinelegraph reported. Electrum then confirmed that the attack included creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is a persistent phishing attack on Electrum users" and warned users not to download Electrum from any source other than the official website.
As of press time, phishing attacks that forged Electrum upgrade notifications have stolen at least 1,450 BTC (the number stolen is officially counted by a user, anti-malware companies Malwarebytes and Electrum), with a total value of approximately $11.6 million. It is worth mentioning that Electrum versions lower than 3.3.4 are vulnerable to such phishing attacks. Users who use Electrum wallets should update to the latest version Electrum 3.3.8 through the official website (electrum.org). At present, v4.0.0 has not been officially released. Version, please do not use the link in the prompt message to update, so as to avoid loss of assets
You can add multiple outputs using between Electrum and Copay wallets.
