Il quotidiano francese Le Monde ha riferito che i cellulari del presidente Emmanuel Macron e altri 15 membri del governo francese nel 2019 potrebbero essere stati tra i potenziali obiettivi di sorveglianza da parte dello spyware realizzato dal gruppo NSO con sede in Israele. La procura di Parigi sta indagando sul sospetto uso dello spyware Pegasus per colpire giornalisti, oppositori politici, attivisti per i diritti umani e politici in oltre 50 paesi.

Un anno fa il tribunale distrettuale di Tel Aviv aveva respinto la richiesta di impedire alla società NSO Group di vendere la sua tecnologia all’estero, in particolare ai regimi repressivi. La corte israeliana aveva rifiutato perché gli avvocati di Amnesty non avrebbero fornito prove sufficienti.

Il software Pegasus sarebbe utilizzato da molti governi nel mondo. Amnesty International ha scoperto che attacchi spyware avvengono contro attivisti vietnamiti per i diritti umani.

In India i manifestanti nelle strade accusano il primo ministro Narendra Modi di utilizzare lo spyware del gruppo NSO, la più famigerata società di hacker a noleggio al mondo, per infiltrarsi in dispositivi appartenenti a giornalisti, oppositori e attivisti. Nessuno è al sicuro. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup, John Thys)
