Israeli Tech Allegations

The Wire, Israeli Tech Companies Target Rights Activists With Tailor-Made Cyber Threats

Allegations: "It’s worthwhile to explore the background of this most recent attack. NSO Group’s Pegasus malware infected the cellphone of Saudi-Canadian activist Omar Abdulaziz, who was a colleague of Jamal Khashoggi, the journalist who was murdered by a Saudi death squad in Istanbul last year. It’s quite possible that since Abdulaziz was in regular communication with Khashoggi, the hack of the former’s phone enabled the Saudi killers to track both men, specifically Khashoggi. Doing so would have been critical to their plans to kill him."
