Guys, I never understood the appeal of web wallets, why would you ever do that when you can have a hardware wallet like ledger or trezor? A web wallet by definition is on the internet where the communications happen through servers and http protocols, it has limitless vulnerabilities:

If you want the luxury of just signing in on the internet and using your coins, use a custodial service like Coinbase. Of you have serious money in crypto, a hardware wallet is literally the only option you should consider.

This electrum fix might be patched, but there's always gonna be another vulnerability that'll be discovered/concocted by the hackers and more people will fall for it. Always follow the safest route possible when we're talking significant sums of money, and for now that is the hardware wallets.

I hope no more people fall victim to this electrum fiasco.
