Wake Up Palestine – Pegasus Spyware

List of scandals involving NSO Group’s Pegasus program

Jerusalem24 – Wake Up Palestine – An investigation by 17 media organizations published in July said NSO’s Pegasus software had targeted smartphones of journalists, rights activists and government officials in several countries.

The company sends its products abroad under licenses from Israel’s Defense Ministry, which has launched its own probe of the company’s practices after the alleged software misuse emerged. No results have been announced and Israel has given no indication so far that it was considering limiting the scope of NSO’s exports.

Although Pegasus is stated as intended to be used against criminals and terrorists, use by authoritarian governments to spy on critics and opponents has often been reported.

In this episode, we speak with Mohammad Muskatti, the IT investigator who discovered the Pegasus breach on the phones of the NGO workers.
