From bypassing 2F- Authentication to reading your message

That's quite awful. I mean, if google 2fa can be breached, it can read messages and can find out your pin than this shitty virus is stringer than corona. I heard recently about people complaining online of money disappearing mysteriously out of Revolut accounts. How can anyone take the virus I would like to know. What third party apps are we talking about?
As an end not, we seem to get back to cash for safety after all...
