Bitcoin Wallet Electrum now supports Lightning Online Payments According to Coindesk July 11th, Bitcoin Wallet Electrum now supports Lightning Web Payments. It has previously been reported that Bitcoin Wallet Electrum has released a beta version of Electrum 4.0, adding support for the Bitcoin Lightning Network.
Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of multi-signature support and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-sign wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have "message defects" that allow an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing to the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may be tricked. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more. This captured currency theft attack is not stealing the private key (electrum's private key is generally stored with two-factor encryption), but replaces the transfer destination address when the user initiates the transfer. Here we remind users that when transferring money, special attention needs to be paid to whether the destination address has been replaced, which is a very popular method of currency theft recently. It is also recommended that users use hardware wallets such as Ledger, and if you pair it with Electrum, although the private key does not have any security issues, you should also be alert to the replacement of the destination address.

Wallet history is available from a central server, such as an Electrum server, but uses a new Tor for each address.
Bitcoin Wallet Electrum users face phishing attacks, and when a user updates a client with a backdoor, the private key is stolen and 1450BTC has been stolen.
As of press time, phishing attacks that forged Electrum upgrade notifications have stolen at least 1,450 BTC (the number stolen is officially counted by a user, anti-malware companies Malwarebytes and Electrum), with a total value of approximately $11.6 million. It is worth mentioning that Electrum versions lower than 3.3.4 are vulnerable to such phishing attacks. Users who use Electrum wallets should update to the latest version Electrum 3.3.8 through the official website (electrum.org). At present, v4.0.0 has not been officially released. Version, please do not use the link in the prompt message to update, so as to avoid loss of assets
As of this writing, the researchers found only one system fingerprint module sent from the C2 server. The module performs the following activities and sends the output results to C2.
When we investigated the first fraudulent website associated with these scams, we found that visitors could see the Coinbase logo and a message for new customers. The website says that if a person sends 0.1 to 10 BTC to that address, they will receive a return of up to 1 to 100 BTC. Below is the BTC address to which people can send funds from news. The address has changed periodically since the Bitcoin survey.
