In 2016, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and many other media outlets covered Lookout and Citizen Lab's striking find: the most sophisticated, targeted, and persistent mobile attack ever found on iOS. On July 18, 2021, The Washington Post and 16 other media outlets reported that Pegasus was used on countless business executives, human rights activists, journalists, academics and government officials.
The attack allows an adversary to silently jailbreak an iOS device and stealthily spy on victims, collecting information from voice communications, camera, email, messaging, GPS, passwords, and contact lists.
This discovery is further proof that mobile platforms are fertile ground for gathering sensitive information from target victims, and well-resourced threat actors are regularly exploiting that mobile environment.
