According to a report, Pegasus spyware may have been used to conduct surveillance on about 300 Indians including two Cabinet ministers’ three opposition leaders, a Constitutional authority, government officials, scientists and about 40 journalists.


  • It is a spyware created by NSO Group, an Israeli cybersecurity firm founded in 2010.
  • Pegasus spyware can hack any iOS or Android device and steal a variety of data from the infected device.
  • It works by sending an exploit link and if the target user clicks on the link, the malware or the code that allows the surveillance is installed on the user’s phone.
  • Once Pegasus is installed, the attacker has complete access to the target user’s phone.
