This spyware has extensive data collection capabilities ranging from reading messaging applications, location tracking, accessing a device’s microphone and camera.

Pegasus has reportedly been operating in Indonesia since 2018 and is used by the National Police and the State Intelligence Agency (BIN). However, both institutions denied the use of these interception tools.

In addition to Indonesia, Pegasus has also been detected in Mexico, the United States, Thailand, Ghana, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kazakhstan, India, Morocco, Rwanda, Bahrain and Azerbaijan.
