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.

Self-destruct

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.
