electrum used addresses
In addition to isolated witnesses, the new bech32 address format based on isolated testimonies will be adopted for the first time in 2018. These addresses do not start with 1 or 3, but start with "bc1" and are ideal for isolating witness transactions. Transactions from these addresses take up less capacity and are therefore cheaper. Wallets such as Coinomi, Electrum, and Wasabi use this new address format directly.
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.
Hackers launched a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on a well-known wallet Electrum server, according to The Devi Security Lab. Hackers used botnets of more than 140,000 computers to attack Electrum nodes and simultaneously deployed malicious nodes. When a user connects to these malicious nodes and sends a transaction using an older version of Electrum, the user is prompted to update the client carrying the backdoor. If the user installs the client as prompted, the private key is stolen and all digital assets are lost. Millions of dollars of digital currency have been stolen, according to Electrum officials. De-dimensional Security Labs recommends that users of electrum wallets be updated to the latest version of the client through the official website and never use the link in the prompt message.
