Dutch intelligence service using controversial Israeli hacking software
Dutch intelligence service AIVD uses controversial hacking software from the Israeli company NSO Group, the Volkskrant reported based on information from four sources.
Pegasus is a controversial piece of software. Research by Canada’s CitizenLab and Amnesty International showed that it is not only intelligence- and investigative services that use the hacking software to track down criminals and terrorists. Governments also use Pegasus to keep an eye on opposition members, activists, and journalists, the researchers said.
