KSA Hacking Allegations

Guardian, Reporter who wrote book on Saudi crown prince was allegedly targeted by hackers

"A new report by Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto’s Munk School found that Ben Hubbard, who has written a book about Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince, was targeted by spyware known as “Pegasus”, which is made by Israel’s NSO Group." The report itself is very interesting, and goes into substantial technical details/allegations. It'll be informative to read any official responses.
