I've just searched for the term "electrum bitcoin wallet" and clicked on one of the links in the search results list. It took me to the page "www. electrum-wallet. com" (don't go there!), which is a complete copy of the original website (but without ssl certificate)!

I've downloaded the standalone exe (windows) and executed it, my antivirus immediately showed me a malware alert. I've immediately shut down my pc and started with a linux antivirus usb drive, checking my whole machine. I keep you posted as soon as I have any news about the malware.
