What is Pegasus Hacking Controversy? How this Israeli spyware works?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


According to the International Association of Media Organizations, many business people and activists, including two Indian Union ministers, 40 journalists, three opposition leaders, and a judge, were hacked by Israel’s spy software. This spy software is only available to government agencies. K’s mobile numbers may have been hacked to more than 300. This report was published on Sunday.

How does Pegasus spyware work?

Pegasus spyware can hack other apps on your phone such as WhatsApp, Free Fire, Instagram, etc. NSO Group, an Israeli cybersecurity company, developed this software. Pegasus is spyware that was developed by NSO Group Technologies, an Israeli cybersecurity firm. If this program is installed on a smartphone, it can be used to gain information about the phone’s microphone, camera, microphone, audio and SMS messages, location, and email.

Pegasus allows hackers to access all information about a person’s phone. NSO Group provided clarifications after this report was published. The company claims that the allegations and issues discussed in media reports are false.

This investigation is based upon a leaked list that includes more than 50,000 phone numbers around the globe. These numbers are believed to have been hacked using Pegasus software by Israeli surveillance company NSO Group. The Wire reported that the media investigation project included forensic tests that showed clear evidence of 37 phones targeted with Pegasus spy software. Ten of these were Indians.

This report comes at a time that the monsoon session has begun on Monday. The issue can be raised in all three houses of Parliament: Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, and Parliament. Some opposition leaders may discuss the issue. According to The Wire, India’s figures in these figures include over 40 journalists, three prominent opposition leaders, two ministers in Narendra Modi’s government, current or former heads and officials in security organizations, judges, and several business people. Numbers are included.

While responding to the report by the government, it referred to its reply to the media organization. It stated that similar claims regarding India using Pegasus to WhatsApp by India were made in the past and that those reports do not have any factual basis. All parties, including WhatsApp at the Indian High Court, denied this.

According to the government, electronic communication can legally be achieved by the Center and the states under national security. This process ensures that any information obtained from any computer resource is protected and monitored. It must be done according to the legal process. According to The Wire, the leaked numbers include prominent journalists from major media organizations like Hindustan Times and India Today, Network 18, The Hindu Express, Network 18, and Network 18.
