Pegasus is a software from the Israeli company NSO Group. A new investigation revealed that this powerful spy program was used by governments and other institutions to spy on more than 50,000 personalities among journalists, activists or politicians.

These new reports by a coalition of up to 16 international media, including The Guardian and The Washington Post and led by the non-profit organization Forbidden Stories, show a network of devices spied on globally.

The NSO software, which in principle was only prepared and indicated for operations against "criminals and terrorists", has been a weapon used by all kinds of regimes to control their citizens. Even the millionaire Jeff Bezos was a victim of this program.

The Israeli company would have sold its tool to at least ten countries: Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Hungary, India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

All these governments pointed to the citizens that they wanted to control, although the investigation cannot confirm whether in the end they were all "hacked" because they have only been able to verify 37, of which 50% were infected.

This sophisticated system developed by NSO is one of the biggest problems for technology companies and their security. So much so that in the United States the large platforms joined in a historic lawsuit against this company and its way of exploiting the privacy flaws of its developments.

Microsoft (including its subsidiaries LinkedIn and GitHub), Google, Cisco, VMware, and the Internet Association, which represents dozens of tech giants, including Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter, joined forces with WhatsApp in late 2020 in the lawsuit that began in 2019. That year the first Pegasus intrusion into their systems was discovered.

But how exactly does this system work and why does it create so much fear among companies? Everything is based on a sophisticated and very expensive program. It is not known how much the different states paid for the services of this company, born in 2010 in Herzliya, a city of 93,000 inhabitants located near Tel Aviv.

But it is known that the firm led by Shalev Hulio, a former Israeli intelligence agent, signed in 2012 a contract with the Mexican government for 20 million dollars to fight against drug trafficking, even helping in the arrest of Chapo Guzmán.
