(Worthy News) – Israeli officials from across the political spectrum were outraged to learn Monday of the scope of the Israel Police’s use of Pegasus, NSO Group’s now-infamous surveillance technology, which reportedly extended to dozens of civilians, ranging from politicians and government functionaries to social activists and journalists.
NSO Group’s Pegasus software allows its users to remotely access mobile phones infected with the spyware. It exploits security vulnerabilities in cellular operating systems to retrieve a device’s content, including text and email messages, photos, call history, and location data.
Lawmakers demanded an independent inquiry into what the police classified as “technological and data-oriented policing” but was, in fact, an intelligence phishing expedition conducted against dozens of individuals prior to any official investigation against them, without judicial warrants, and despite police officials knowing that any information obtained sans such warrants was inadmissible in court.
