In December 2018, Slow Fog first discovered and alerted an attacker to a messaging flaw using the Electrum Wallet client to force an "update prompt" to pop up when a user transfers money, inducing users to update and download malware to carry out a currency theft attack.

However, we do not rule out a similar threat to the new version.
