Macintosh users make up 7.28 percent of all network users, according to Research Group Net Market Share. There are other wallets available for OSX systems, mainly MultiBit and Electrum and, of course, Bitcoin QT, but these wallets are not related to the operating system and can be used for Linux, Windows and Mac.

Electrum is free software used by many cryptocurrencies websites, including merchants and exchanges, to store bitcoins. Anyone can run an Electrum server, and the software supports hardware wallets such as Trezor, Ledger, and Keepkey. Enhanced features include multi-signal and the ability to sign transactions using cold storage devices that are not connected to the network.
Electrum tweeted today about the incident, saying it was "a persistent phishing attack on Electrum users" and imploring users to check the effectiveness of the resources they log on to.
In Tor, the communication initiator chooses how to route traffic over the Tor network. Therefore, all clients must know all Tor trunks, which can be costly for the network. The Tor tunnel transmits arbitrary TCP traffic, but the TCP stream cannot tolerate increased latency. Tor does not increase coverage traffic because coverage traffic has no noticeable impact and no additional latency. In addition, Tor does not add any latency to communications, which is why it is often classified as low latency. As a result, Tor can only defend against opponents with local coverage and does not use statistical methods to analyze network traffic.
A day after Ormandy's post, Electrum released a full update of version 3.0.5, which is now available from the official website.
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.
Bitcoin desktop wallet client Electrum has released a 4.0 beta version, adding several important updates, including support for the Lightning network, nearly a year after the previous version of Electrum, 3.3.8 (last July). In the 4.0 beta version, Electrum mainly added features such as PSBT (partially signed Bitcoin transactions), Lightning Network, watchtowers (暸 watchtowers) and Submarineswaps (subliminal switching).

According to the slow fog zone, the Phishing attack by Electrum forged upgrade tips has stolen at least 200 BTCs, and this attack cannot be avoided by upgrading Electrum alone, requiring the entire ecological service to make corresponding changes (because Electrum is not a full node, and then on the transaction broadcast and the corresponding server has a message communication, the attacker can also deploy a malicious server)
Bitcoin Wallet Electrum has released a beta version of Electrum 4.0, which supports the Lightning Network.Tags: repair electrum
Essentially, how high it can go, how long it can go, how far it can fall, how long it can fall, we can't predict.
The fact that not many people know is that Esplora is bundled with a based and optimized Electrum server. This Electrum server is derived from Electrs and is now maintained separately by the Blockstream engineering team. Over the past two years, Esplora has become one of the fastest and most scalable Electrum server solutions available for Bitcoin due to continuous updates and performance optimization. Esplora is also the only Electrum server that supports liquid networks.
