Pegasus of Israel on the US banned list


U.S. authorities on Wednesday imposed sanctions on Israel’s NSO Group, the maker of the Pegasus spyware. Efforts have been made to confirm that the spyware was used to spy on the phones of government officials and journalists, AFP reported.

The U.S. Department of Commerce said in a statement that the tools also allow foreign countries to deport and persecute immigrants. It is a symptom of an authoritarian government that seeks to silence dissidents, journalists and activists outside its sovereign borders.

Washington also imposed sanctions on Candiru, another Israeli company, the Singapore-based Computer Security Initiative Consultancy, and the Russian company Positive Technologies.

US companies will not be able to sell or provide any information or technology to blacklisted people after the US imposes these restrictions.

If you have Pegasus spyware on your smartphone, it becomes a ‘pocket spying device’. It was possible to smuggle messages, pictures, location information of the smartphone as well as turn on the camera of the phone without informing the owner.

Thousands of human rights activists, journalists, politicians and business executives from around the world are on Pegasus’ surveillance list. Then the NSO group came under controversy all over the world.
