Governments deny the results, but Amnesty International stands by them

Even though the NSO and governments throughout the world disputed allegations of probable Pegasus spyware targets, Amnesty International released a statement on Thursday claiming it “categorically stands by the results.”

The organization also said that “false rumors being pushed on social media are intended to distract from the widespread unlawful targeting of journalists, activists, and others that the Pegasus Project has revealed”.

“Amnesty International categorically stands by the findings of the Pegasus Project, and that the data is irrefutably linked to potential targets of NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware. The false rumors being pushed on social media are intended to distract from the widespread unlawful targeting of journalists, activists, and others that the Pegasus Project has revealed.”

More than 300 authenticated mobile phone numbers in India, including two serving Union ministers, over 40 journalists, three opposition leaders, and a sitting judge, as well as scores of businessmen and activists, were reportedly attacked for hacking by the Pegasus Spyware, according to a consortium of media outlets on Sunday.
