Not really, IMHO (on a first skimming).
POLA has some indirect relationships, but
essentially this attack is an old one that is
conducted normally in meatspace. Think of the
recruiting of spys. What the attack does is to
not pervert the system at all, it perverts the
user. The fact that some parts of the perversion
are automated doesn't change the basic attack.
