All About Lightning Electrum
Wallet Electrum was upgraded by the DoS attack, with users allegedly losing millions of dollars.
Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are currently facing a phishing attack, according to the Devi Security Lab. Hackers broadcast messages to electrum clients through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user follows the prompt to install the 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 approximately $11.6 million had been stolen from phishing attacks that forged Electrum upgrade alerts. Devi 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 Electrum3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released v4.0.0, and do not use the link in the prompt message to avoid asset losses.

If the mobile wallet is connected to a random node and the user has both mobile and desktop wallets, the funds sent to the desktop wallet will not appear on the mobile wallet with the same mn word. If the desktop wallet is running a local node, both wallets display the funds sent. The reason is that the local node (integrated into the desktop wallet) always monitors the blockchain of UTXO associated with the wallet seed. Mobile wallets do not run local nodes, so transactions sent to their specific SBBS address can only be monitored. Of course, under no circumstances will any funds be lost.
Qtum Electrum is a Qtum desktop light wallet modified from the well-known Bitcoin wallet Electrum.
