Lumi Wallet: Insecure or Scam ?

Another Cryptocurrency wallet, boasting next generation security has been released. The proprietary, Lumi Wallet has been identified as either a scam or simply an insecure application. In a blog post by wallet developer Daniel Staudigel the security flaws of Lumi Wallet were examined. According to Staudigel:

I know something is off — “truly private” and “web wallet” and “extremely secure” are impossible to have for the same product. If something is a web wallet, it’s definitely not extremely secure (see recent DNS attacks for MyEtherWallet), and it’s highly unlikely to be “truly private” due to technical limitations of the web.
