Spying software Pegasus: At least 40 journalists could have been targeted - DW News.

An Indian news portal has alleged authorities in the country likely spied on phones belonging to journalists, politicians, and business leaders among others. The revelations are part of a global investigation into the use of specialized phone spying software by governments around the world.
The software, called Pegasus, developed by an Israeli surveillance technology firm NSO, can hack into smartphones and access data on it. A consortium of media organisations were able to access a list containing numbers of persons potentially targeted using Pegasus.
The Indian portal The Wire, alleges at least 40 Indian journalists could have been targets of this hacking. Of these, the phones of at least five journalists were confirmed to have been infected with Pegasus spyware.
