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
In a recent announcement on Twitter, Electrum advised users to disable the automatic connection option and manually select a server, while the company is developing a more powerful Electrum.
Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered the Bitcoin wallet Electrum.
When you download Electrum for any non-Bitcoin cryptocurrencies, you are downloading software that is not approved by us, and you may download malware against your Bitcoin wallet. Don't count on the integrity of those who promote sh tcoins.
Two entrances, the icon is very eye-catching, with a small red envelope icon (have you seen the icon inside the KEY logo?) )
and Android system. Installing Electrum requires you to write down a 12-word seed to help you recover your wallet on multiple devices. If you forget your private key, this seed can also make Electrum look more human. In addition, Electrum has a "cold storage" mode where you don't have to pay Bitcoin to view your balance.
It's not hard to run your own Electrum server and point your wallet to just use it. This restores Electrum to the point where it has the same privacy and security attributes as the full node, where no one else can see the address or transaction that the wallet is interested in. Electrum then becomes an all-node wallet.
Since its launch seven months ago, two million Bitcoin wallets have been created. Bitcoin wallet users can use Bitpay to receive and pay Bitcoin () and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). At the same time, Bitcoin Wallet is open to businesses. In addition, the wallet is loaded with ShapeShift' feature, which is a way for users to exchange BCH for BTC in the wallet interface.
By default, electrum wallets are randomly connected to a set of Electrum servers. From a privacy perspective, this is not a good thing because it discloses your wallet address and balance to unknown third parties. And unfortunately, many public Electrum servers are run by individuals or groups of blockchain analytics companies or worse. Therefore, if you are using an Electrum wallet, it is generally recommended that you run your own Electrum server and then connect the wallet to that server.
Still take Android. Google bought the then-unknown Android for $50 million in 2005 and announced it was open source in November 2007, as you know, and now Android has spread from smartphones to almost everything in technology.
