Electrum Cryptocurrency Wallet Copycat Caught Stealing Seed Keys

Earlier this week, the team behind popular Bitcoin wallet Electrum warned on Github that a copycat app called Electrum Pro has been caught stealing user seed keys.

According to the Electrum developers, the party behind the fake wallet even registered the “electrum.com” domain where the malicious app uploads the stolen user seed keys.

Anyone in possession of a wallet’s seed keys will be able to access funds within the wallet. However, the Electrum devs further reported that they have not seen any reports of stolen funds.
