The Pegasus Project: How ‘No-Click Spyware’ Hacked Mobile Phones

    This video looks at a zero-click smartphone spyware tool known as 'Pegasus' that was sold by the Israel-based NSO Group and was used by its clients to target more than 50,000 people, including businesspeople, lawyers, heads of state, political opponents, diplomats, human rights defenders, and journalists, providing the attacker with full access to the target's data, images, photographs, texts, camera, microphone and geolocation. Pegasus was exposed following a massive leak of confidential information, triggering a global investigation by journalists in which the hunted became the hunter. Mark Seibel of the Washinton Post and Stephanie Kirchgaessner of The Guardian discuss how Pegasus worked and provide specific examples of what it was used for.Speakers
