Electron Cash is only a version of Electrum, so if you're used to Electrum, you won't have any problems.
Digital wallet developer Electrum has released an emergency patch saying it found a vulnerability that could lead any website hosting Electrum to steal a user's digital currency, exposing passwords to the JOHNSONRPC interface and ingelling hackers full control of the wallet. Earlier, Electrum released the first patch, but it didn't seem to solve the problem, and they released a second update urgently Sunday night local time.

It is reported that malicious websites (electrumsecure) fake Electrum website phishing attacks, to guide users to download and use the wallet, in order to steal the user's private key and other sensitive data.

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.
This "update prompt" is not an official act of Electrum, but a phishing attack by an attacker that exploits a message flaw on the Electrum client and the ElectrumX server, which requires the attacker to deploy the malicious ElectrumX server in advance, and the malicious server is localized by the user's Electrum client (because the Electrum client is a light wallet and the user needs the ElectrumX server to broadcast the transaction). At the time of the madness, malicious ElectrumX servers accounted for as much as 71% of the total, and the show did not fully count that hundreds of bitcoins had been stolen in this phishing attack over the past year or so.
