The Guardian - Pegasus: the spyware technology that threatens democracy

 Freaking scary? With just a single text message, Pegasus can access everything on your phone, plus a whole load more. 

Pegasus spyware is capable of bypassing your phone's security and gaining complete access to your device - including emails, messages, GPS location, photos, video, and your phone's microphone. A Guardian investigation can now reveal widespread abuse of the Pegasus technology by government clients around the world who purchased the spyware from its Israeli manufacturer — the NSO Group. People who were selected as possible targets include journalists, lawyers and human rights defenders
