All About Lightning Electrum
Lightweight Bitcoin Wallet Electrum announced that the next version will support Lightning network payments, implemented with Python, an electrum network node where wallet users do not need to run Lightning network nodes themselves to make payments, and electrum's Lightning network nodes have now been merged into the Electrum master branch.
Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing a phishing attack, according to the Devi Security Lab. Hackers broadcast messages to the Electrum client through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user follows the prompt to install this "backdoor-carrying client", the private key is stolen and all digital assets are stolen. At the time of writing, at least 1,450 BTCs worth about $11.6 million had been stolen from phishing attacks that faked Electrum upgrade tips. 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.

Whether you choose to use mixers or not, there are additional steps you should take to mask your transactions and outsemod those forensics firms. One of the easiest but most effective ways to create a new Bitcoin wallet using services such as Electrum. Send your tokens to this address, then use the Tor browser to connect to the web, create a new wallet, and then send the tokens to a new address. For added privacy, you can repeat this step, send tokens between multiple wallets, and change the time delay between transaction amounts and each send. This process may seem difficult and not practical in everyday use, but in some cases it is a valuable exercise when you want to maintain a distance between the token source and the token destination.
