According to Bleeping Computer, the Bitcoin wallet app Electrom was on GitHub on May 9th, accusing a phishing product called Electrum Pro of stealing a user's seed key and registering a domain name called electrum without Electrum's permission. The Electrum team noted that there was a piece of code indicating that the counterfeit product might have taken the user's seed key and uploaded it to the electrum. Affected users should transfer funds from Bitcoin URLs managed by Eletrum Pro.
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 wallets are fast and have 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.
According to Coindesk, encrypted wallet Electrum will increase support for the Bitcoin Lightning network. Thomas Voegtlin, founder of Electrum, said: 'We've been developing gitHub for almost a year and the main body is basically done, and we're likely to release the information in the next few weeks.'

Electrum Litecoin Wallet review: Lightweight Litecoin customers.
Electrum Bitcoin Wallet is a reliable service that has been around since 2011. It is called a "thin" cold wallet, where the entire blockchain is not downloaded to the user's device but stored on a network server. In this case, the private key is stored encrypted on the user's computer and is never sent to the server.
