Bitcoin Electrum Wallet Attacked: Hacker Steals 200 BTC

An anonymous hacker (or consortium of hackers) have purportedly stolen nearly $1 million worth of Bitcoin (BTC), reports technology media outlet ZDNet. Per the report, the Electrum Wallet, a popular open-source project founded in mid-June 2011, was breached in a “clever attack.”

The attack, which has since been confirmed by the team behind the venture, purportedly consisted of a false message appearing on users’ official Electrum-based applications, which beckoned consumers to visit a site.
