    Just goes to show that 'just not being stupid' doesn't cut it anymore beyond a certain point.

    Apart from the wireless access point thingie, all other methods actually require interaction from the user in a very deliberate manner. How does a malicious calc get into someone's home dir? How does one run a file with a bogus filename? Nothing special there.

    Devious means the delivery method is not obvious. But if it relies on the same tricks like 10 years back, then it's no rocket science.
