What is Pegasus, how does our phone hack?
Pegasus spyware is once again in discussion in India. In India, it is being claimed to spy on the phones of many journalists and celebrities. Pegasus has been developed by Israel’s cyber security company NSO.
Many countries including Bangladesh have bought Pegasus spyware. There have been controversies about this in the past as well. From Mexico to the government of Saudi Arabia, questions have been raised about its use. Several other companies, including Facebook-owned company Facebook, have sued this.
It is not officially known about India whether the government has bought ‘Pegasus’ from NSO or not. However, NSO has earlier denied all the allegations against itself.
The company has been claiming that it only sells the program to accredited government agencies and aims to “fight terrorism and crime”. NSO has also made similar claims regarding the recent allegations.
