That is a problem, but one that should be addressed by education, not by dumbing down the population even more, because that makes the majority of people even more helpless.
I quite agree with that, however just like I said, the Internet and computer devices are inherently insecure. How would you teach them not to trust DNS or their Internet connection? How would you teach them not to trust their OS or their computing device (now that we know that BIOS/UEFI/your NIC/HDD firmware can all be p0wned)?
As of 2017 we're all fucked. Some people naÃvely believe we aren't. The ones who usually run Windows without any decent AV. At the same time 100% of modern CPUs (x86/ARM) are rigged for remote control without you knowing. >98% of people in the world run software/firmware/integrated circuits (read CPUs, DSPs, etc. etc. etc) which only select people in the world can access and verify.
