Pegasus Spyware

Attention! A new spyware dubbed Pegasus has been brought to attention by many researchers. Pegasus is a very sophisticated attacker that can make copies of text messages, calendar entries, and even eavesdrop in on conversations. The software is highly configurable depending on the country and features the user has.

Pegasus was originally being used to target Ahmed Mansoor in order to retrieve secret information about detainees tortured in UAE jails. However, now the targets have expanded to high-value people for purposes of espionage and retrieving information.

pegasus-infected-iphoneApple has already issued updates that patch the three vulnerabilities that make this infection possible. Even though this spyware is mainly aimed at high-value people, it is suggested that everyone install the update just to be safe.
