How it enters your phone

Earlier, Pegasus tricked the owner into clicking on a malicious link. Two Mexican journalists were presented with supposedly compromising photos of their partners; one more received a plea for help finding a missing daughter with a link to a purported portrait. Now, Pegasus doesn’t have to do even that. A simple call to the victim’s device could install the spyware. The victim doesn’t even have to answer the call.


Like Mission Impossible messages, if Pegasus’ hiding place is found, it can self-destruct. It destroys itself if it cannot communicate with its command-and-control server for over 60 days.
