Pegasus, a software developed by an Israeli company hacked 'WhatsApp' in the past

NSO, an Israeli spyware firm thought to have hacked WhatsApp in the past denies a report in the Financial Times that it told clients it can scoop user data from the world’s top social media.

NSO in their reply claimed that its products do not provide the type of collection capabilities and access to cloud applications, services, or infrastructure as listed and suggested in the report by Financial Times.

It also said it does not operate the Pegasus system, only licensing it to closely vetted government users for the sole purpose of preventing or investigating serious crime including terrorism.

Apparently, Pegasus is a highly invasive tool that can reportedly switch on a target’s cell phone camera and microphone, and access data on it, effectively turning the phone into a pocket spy.
