“Attacks like this play on weaknesses in the human operating system that can’t easily be patched” –
This is a very powerful statement and also the weakness of Humans. The next weakness is actually explained by Bezos hack, and he said that anyone could be ready to do anything if they know how to hack when you offer them money.
