All About Lightning Electrum
Hackers have launched a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on a well-known wallet Electrum server, according to Johnwick.io. Hackers used a botnet of more than 140,000 computers to attack Electrum's nodes and simultaneously deployed malicious nodes. When the user connects to these malicious nodes and sends transactions using the older version of Electrum.
The Electrum development team also warned them that they had nothing to do with a project called Electrum Dark: they used our name without our permission. Be careful with the altcoin version of Electrum, as they are sometimes used as vectors to install malware against your real Bitcoin wallet.
Electrum was launched in 2011 with a lite version of Bitcoin wallet with an open source code under MIT licenses.
In addition, small partners who have used Electrum wallets should be aware that with Thecret phrase generated by Electrum, we can recover bitcoin keys on any browser using the Bitcoin Wallet web tool. And Electrum is so secure that there is no evidence that the distributed attack prevention system designed by Dark Wallet will be due to Electrum.
Bitcoin Gold has released the official Light Wallet ElectrumG 3.2.1, which supports Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop systems. ElectrumG is the most widely used bitcoin light wallet, the bit gold version of Electrum, without losing security or downloading all 170G block data.
If someone's Electrum wallet connects to one of these servers and tries to send a BTC transaction, they see an official message telling them to update their Electrum wallet, as well as a scam URL.
David Burkett, developer of anonymous coin Grin, said in a project update that a Wallet compatible with the Windows platform could not be published by January 15 when Grin's main web line was available. 'I had to choose between publishing a problematic node plus a problematic wallet, or a secure, stable node, but no wallet, so when I chose to go online, I decided not to publish a wallet that was compatible with the Windows platform,' he said. He also said that windows platform-compatible wallets will continue to be developed, hoping that developers familiar with the Windows platform can help and work together to get the job done.
