    Electrum-LTC Litecoin wallet

    electrum-ltc.net is a fake website created in august 2021. the original website is electrum-ltc.org as far as i know. it is created in 2014. in my concerns about download verification i wanted to search for the latest fake electrum-ltc websites. so i went to the bing.com search engine who always provides the users with semi professional fake websites and i typed electrum ltc in the search engine. i found the fake website electrum-ltc.net . the first thing that seemed off was that they provided the electrum-ltc-4.1.5 version. meanwhile electrum-ltc.org is still at version 4.0.9.3. however i still downloaded the fake 4.1.5 version from the fake .net website and the provided signature. i used kleopatra and tried to confirm the signature for the 4.1.5 wallet with Adrian Gallaghers public key ([[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) FE33 4887 7809 386C). it said in red: the signature is invalid. bad signature (screenshot attached). i wanted to look if the fake website was so smart to at least create a fake public key for thrasher, but they didnt. when i clicked on the thrasher public key link i was sent to a website that said error, out of service atm or something like that (screenshot attached).
