    Electrum Wallets Were Vulnerable And Nothing Was Done For Two Years. My Bitcoins were either stolen from my Electrum Wallet or Electrum just made Billions by claiming they were hacked. STAY AWAY FROM ELECTRUM!!!

    Electrum is claiming to have been hacked and my coins were stored in Electrum.

    I opened my Electrum wallet today, January 18, 2007 and found out that on January 2, 2018 all my bitcoins (7.88014412 btc worth $110,682.86 USD) were sent to the following bitcoin address:

    Apparently, Electrum knew about the vulnerability in their software for over two years. They are only claiming they knew about the security issue as of November 24, 2017 and did nothing about it until January 7, 2018 which just happens to be 5 days after my coins were stolen.

    Electrum never warned wallet owners of the severity of the security vulnerability and after learning about the problem, they were negligent by not releasing a patch, immediately, to fix the problem. If nothing else, they should have at least informed wallet owners to move their coins out until the problem was fixed.

    Read more about Electrum's carelessness about security within their software here: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/...-vulnerable-to-hackers-for-two-years-json-rpc

    I did not have 2FA enabled but I did have a very long password that had to be entered before funds could be transferred. I also have Norton AV installed and no viruses have been found.

    Is there any way you can help me get my money back? or anyone you can recommend that can help me track down the owner of this wallet where my funds were sent to, or recommend someone who knows how I can file a lawsuit against Electrum?

    IF YOU HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF ELECTRUM PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORY TO HELP US BUILD A CASE AND GET MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED TO FIND OUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
