A colleague sent me this article about malware impacting Android phones (https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/12/vulnerability-in-fully-patched-android-phones-under-active-attack-by-bank-thieves/)<https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/12/vulnerability-in-fully-patched-android-phones-under-active-attack-by-bank-thieves/> because it specifically calls attention to the difficulties some with cognitive disabilities may have when recognizing the “subtle behaviors of apps” when this malware is present.
This in some ways is similar to the vulnerabilities discussion we had at the face to face in January when discussing issues with two factor authentication.
