Pegasus spyware is still active in Canada, raising alarm bells among those already concerned that the software had been sold to countries with a history of human rights violations. The NSO Group, which developed Pegasus, gained notoriety after it was revealed that the company’s spyware had been sold to countries with a history of human rights violations.
According to Canadian observers, Pegasus, the spyware developed by the Israeli NSO, is still active. The NSO gained notoriety when it was revealed that its spy software for iPhones and other digital devices was being used in several states to conduct illegal covert surveillance against journalists. Apple and other manufacturers are constantly patching the flaws that allow Pegasus to work, but there is no guarantee that the spyware cannot hack one device or another.
Pegasus is a spyware program developed by NSO Group, an Israeli cyberarms company part of the United States-based firm Francisco Partners Management. Intelligence agencies have used Pegasus software to target human rights defenders, journalists, lawyers, and activists worldwide with malware.
