Israel's NSO Group might prefer to work in the shadows, but the technology firm keeps making headline news. Earlier this week, a bombshell report from Amnesty International revealed that NSO Group's Pegasus spyware has been used by authoritarian governments to hack into the phones of thousands of journalists and human rights activists.
Whether or not you're a journalist or an activist, this is still a terrifying prospect. Thankfully, there's a way to check if the Pegasus spyware has compromised your device. Amnesty International released a free Mobile Verification Toolkit (MVT) alongside its report which "is a modular tool that simplifies the process of acquiring and analysing data from Android devices, and the analysis of records from iOS backups and filesystem dumps, specifically to identify potential traces of compromise."
