How vulnerable are we to spying technology? | Inside Story



Governments have been hacking into people’s privacy for years.
Some of the technology to do it is for sale and tens of thousand of politicians, journalists, lawyers and activists have been targeted.
The system’s called Pegasus. It’s from an Israeli spyware company called NSO.
Thanks to evidence collected by the Paris-based NGO Forbidden Stories and Amnesty International, it seems there are 50-thousand people whose phones have been selected.
Most of the numbers were in Gulf Countries and North Africa. But others include India, Pakistan and France.
So, how much of a threat is advanced technology to privacy and human rights?

  1. Thanks to 4192_victor on IG, I can remotely see what my girlfriend is doing on whatsapp and ipad, she is so far away from me in the middle of this pandemic that I just need to make sure she is not talking to someone else because she is becoming very distant lately.

  3. What I haven't seen is, it being mentioned to put a stop to this ability to hack the phones, changes to OS systems can be implicated, software can be put in place, protocols can be put in place, legislations can be brought out, but we hear nothing, every one is silent

  6. A guest on The Wall Street Journal Report spoke sometime last week about making over $631,000 in 4months with a capital of $100,000, which made me realize that as a beginner i have alot to learn, so please assist me with any pointers or tips that would help me make this much profit.

  7. It is not surprising that a company closely related to a regime that causes such untold misery to the Palestinians in the occupied territories is responsible for this unethical and illegal software. Depravity knows no limits.

  8. God bless Israel 🇮🇱 and may GOD BLESS WISDOM KNOWLEDGE STRENGTH AMEN 🙏🏼 ISRAEL 🇮🇱 IS ONLY ONLY DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY IN MIDDLE EAST 🇮🇱🇮🇱💙❤️🙏🏼💙

  9. “The Israeli government has human rights responsibilities “. How quaint of you to say. Anyone who thinks for even a nanosecond that that government – or any other – takes that seriously is sleeping.

  10. Why is Al Jazeera working to disinform the international community about the Ethiopian government when The Saudi Regime illegally spying on journalists and activists? Where is the UN to take those responsible to ICC for killing journalists?

  11. I don't know why people are so surprised, scared and amazed on pagasus, when Stewart Snowdon already revealed all these information in 2013. His crime was only he revealed the secret before taking permission from the controllers.

  12. Stupid narrative – clearly the group amnesty international itself has retracted their statement saying this is a made-up “ list “ of people that could be targeted ( it’s hypothetical)

  13. That's a very unfortunate that some countries who close to Israel are misusing the Pegasus against their opponents in one way or other , while , neglecting the fact of rules of global engagement ; However , the action should be taken against those who intact such a spyware for the illegal surveillance , and creating the way forward by which such a issues can be dealt with iron fist , Moreover , the Governmental organizations and other technological firms in different states should support Governments in the way so that they can tackle the growing flux of spying access , Hence , it is a need of hour to handle it with one way approach by putting in place accountability regulations for the completion of this task in more comprehensive way

  14. profiles have different layers the government has access to almost everything. the question is if you can minimize your profile in relation to companies or the public.

  15. an Israeli commission of inquiry??? When minister Shamed is a very close friend of NSO CEO???? And Bennet had a!ready advocated the use of pegasus to trace all citizens movements??

  16. Why Israel is not getting sanctions or their company as China and Russia are getting? Even they don't have any proof against them(China and Russia). Israel is caught red handed and still west is quiet. Just imagine this was done by China or Russia or any other country?

  17. this work is alive and well alright at the bases of levels . What gets me is the young'ns being schooled by familiar adults to basically lie and deceive as a living . They show them how to steal into people homes via electronics/ electromagnetic means there by how to gather every thought word and deed every idiosyncratic notion , I see them here them jump up when they got something and run too the overseer and I notice their continence when thy move these young one are filling up with . .. a vile levers being pulled for thrill. until when when cutting into love of ones own? but how hallow can a child be and still stay alive. like rotting a youth from the inside to out so what so is it so it is ugly expendable units Sad so sad

  18. NSO is it a desibdeing name of Country I ask because I have a area that N.S.O is aye city of San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge human transportation ground travel of the civilians of the city NSO commonly speaks of the international air ports of the area of city named North Side Oakland.

  19. This is insight story but bulshit story. Since crime commmited is not Russia or china or iran, as u see the report is very different. If this was China or russia we will bad mouthing for weeks non stop
