I just had a quick read, and this looks fine (maybe there is an option to remove some redundancy but not sure). However, I would have expected that this would also talk about likability. Or do we already cover hat somewhere else? More generally I think it would be helpful to add some text at the beginning to not only define the attackers capabilities but also its intention, so the (goal of) the attack itself.
