“As always, the NSO will conduct a detailed investigation if it receives credible evidence that its technology has been misused. If necessary, the system will be shut down,” a company spokesman said.
The NSO has been denying the list released by media houses since Sunday in the name of their investigation report. The company’s statement comes on the heels of a Reuters report that Israel has appointed a high – level team to investigate allegations that Pegasus has been abused.
The NSO claims that it only provides software to governments for terrorism, crime, and public security. The company says the numbers on the released list are not affiliated with the NSO Group.
