Lol you don't think the writer should have included some info to give context to this world's most dangerous malware?

Things like this article should include even most basic prevention tips.

Wiki, btw, is useful but best to complement it with authoritative sources

Doesn’t make sense to warn about, because people aware of such things probably don’t open mail attachments or know how to quickly react if it happened, and the normal average users don’t even read about it and continue happily opening every unsuspicious but attractive mail attachment, if it is designed or texted attractively enough, promising cheaper prices, giveaways of millions, free bonus points, gamble winnings, higher share profits or bank interest rates, a much better job, usually unreachable big steady income, whatever, you name it. Most people, or almost everyone, even the ones who are aware, have their personal and individual barrier when they , if above, open it anyway one day , inviting the virus or malware although fully alarmed and knowing.
