Yes, exactly---if.

I'm not arguing against that.  It's the "if" part.  The article left no
space inbetween for a threat model between "organized criminals, don't
click on herbal Viagra ads" and "Mossad, magical amulets".  The original
conversation into which you pasted that quote wasn't talking about
Mossad (unless I missed something).
