WhatsApp chief: US allies' national security officials targeted with NSO malware

High-ranking government officials around the world were targeted by governments using spyware from NSO Group, according to WhatsApp head Will Cathcart.

Speaking to The Guardian, Cathcart discussed the spyware attacks that were revealed by the Project Pegasus investigation, saying they had parallels with a 2019 attack against 1,400 WhatsApp users.

“The reporting matches what we saw in the attack we defeated two years ago, it is very consistent with what we were loud about then,” Cathcart said. "This should be a wake-up call for security on the internet … mobile phones are either safe for everyone or they are not safe for everyone.”
