In August-September, Bitcoin wallet Electrum was hacked twice, and according to multiple sources, at least 1,450 BTCs worth $11.6 million were stolen from phishing attacks that faked Electrum upgrade tips.

It's important to transfer the BTC from your original Electrum wallet (to a new Electrum wallet, a new wallet generated by a new monemone, and back it up), which is important to prevent possible BTC loss.
Planet Daily News Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of supporting multi-signatures 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 a "message flaw" that allows an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing for the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may get a trick. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more.
When trading, the d'centric exchange also charges a fee of 0.1% of the total transaction amount (0.3% for individual exchanges, but for taker, maker is free, liquidity and trading depth concessions are available) and the fee is borne directly by the user. What's special here is that there are fees when you cancel a transaction, because the whole process is similar to the transfer process, so there is a gas consumption.
Litecoin Foundation: To simplify money management, it will migrate from electrum-LTC wallets to BitGo wallets.
As mentioned earlier, because electrum light wallets are different from Bitcoin light wallets such as MultiBit or Breadwallet, they cannot communicate directly with bitcoin full nodes and can only communicate with electrum.
Another upgrade under study is the release of a new version of the Electrum-LTC desktop wallet. Electrum-LTC is an SPV wallet that can be used in Windows, Linux, and OS X operating systems.
Electrum 0.18.8 is available for details at github.
