Pegasus spyware and the consequences for privacy

It's not that long ago that people were preoccupied with the hacking of some social media sites, including those believed to be immune from such things, such as Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, for example. Now we have Pegasus spyware.

Pegasus is a programme produced by an Israeli company, NSO, through which mobile telephones can be hacked into and monitored. An investigation has identified around 50,000 phones that have been infected with the programme, which was bought by Arab regimes to spy on their opponents and other parties. The story has been well covered in the media.

However, this is the tip of the iceberg. There is no doubt that security and military agencies in developed countries are already developing advanced generations of Pegasus. When available, they will probably be very cheap.
