Those targets were also on a 2016 list of more than 50,000 phone numbers that included activists, journalists, and politicians, though it’s not clear anyone over 37 has fallen prey to the attacks.
NSO strongly rejected the allegations about the hack and the list, insisting that there is no factual basis and that the list is too big to focus solely on potential Pegasus targets, as Cathcart directly challenges, questioning whether WhatsApp exec has other alternatives to its tools that would help thwart Pedophiles, terrorists, and criminals using encrypted software.
