New York Times: Israeli Firm Used WhatsApp In Spy Program

If you are using WhatsApp groups to chat with friends and family, you might want to know who is monitoring your communications.

New York Times:

“SAN FRANCISCO — WhatsApp sued the Israeli cybersurveillance firm NSO Group in federal court on Tuesday, claiming the company’s spy technology was used on the popular messaging service in a wide-ranging campaign targeting journalists and human-rights activists.

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, claimed in the lawsuit that an NSO Group program that was intended to piggyback on WhatsApp was used to spy on more than 1,400 people in 20 countries. …

The messaging service said the victims included 100 journalists, prominent female leaders, several people who had been targeted with unsuccessful assassination attempts, political dissidents and human rights activists — as well as their families.”

Are you sharing memes about Israel?

Did you know that’s anti-Semitism? You don’t want to face the consequences, right? You know there will be payback for crossing Israel, right?

  1. How did Israel manage to spy on users of an app with outstanding end to end encryption? Either they have surveillance technology that’s out of this world, or Zuckerberg gave his Jewish buddies a backdoor entrance. Either way, a good reminder that nothing is 100% secure. Stay safe out there, my friends.

  2. American scandals relating to foreign spying generally revolves around what are or are perceived to be friendly foreign powers.

    Almost all of the Soviet spying in the ’40s and ’50s was due to the USSR being a WWII ally. The spies figured they could get away with it, and got overconfident.

    What we’re find out in the Trump Russia “collusion” investigation is that there’s way more improper transactions relating to Ukraine. That because Ukraine is a supposed ally against Russia.

    I predict that, once it’s all over, and all said and done, we’ll find that bidirectional espionage relating to Israel during the Trump White House years was way off the charts.

  3. All communications whether cell phones or computers are not secure.
    True story – About 5 years after 9/11 in a coastal town in the NE I was on a cell phone talking with a friend about EMPs. We were talking for about 15 minutes when a cop came up to me (I was on foot) and started questioning me, asking for ID ect… After the interrogation I asked “what was the problem”? He told me he had a complaint about someone talking about bombs. Since there was nobody around who could listen in on our conversation I then asked him who made the complaint. He answered me truthfully, the complaint came from some national security agency and I must of triggered some words while talking. Even the cop himself was taken aback from what happened. After checking out my cell phone he asked me what an EMP was, I told him and he then let me go.
    Nothing is safe or secure even VPNs. We’re all being watched and monitored daily, welcome to 1984.
