All About Lightning Electrum
Since the end of December 2018, Bitcoin wallet Electrum users have lost 771 BTCs (worth about $4 million) in phishing attacks, according to a study released by Malwarebytes Labs. Electrum is known to implement a variant of a technology called Simplified Payment Verification (SPV), which allows users to send and receive transactions without having to download a full copy of the Bitcoin blockchain. An attacker is exploiting a vulnerability that anyone can manipulate a public Electrum peer to carry out an attack. (TNW)
