Qtum Electrum synchronously updates electrum-related code.
Electrum is a popular software wallet that works by connecting to a dedicated server. These servers receive a hash of the Bitcoin address in the wallet and reply with transaction information. Electrum Wallet is fast and has few resources, but by default, it connects to these servers and can easily monitor users. In addition to Electrum, some other software uses public Electrum servers. By 2019, it is a faster and better alternative to BIP37.
The early Electrum-LTC addresses will remain online for another month, while the latest BitGo wallet addresses will be released soon.

This attack, confirmed by Electrum, involves creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information.
