A recent example of malware was the controversy surrounding Pegasus which had allegedly been used by government authorities to spy on journalists, activists, and legal professionals in several countries. Pegasus is a sophisticated malware targeting IOS and Android devices which allows the attacker to monitor and survey the target’s communications including his contact list, SMS, voice calls, VoIP calls and messages from WhatsApp, Signal, Skype etc., without being detected.

In 2016, Zimperium researchers conducted research into Pegasus as it was targeting iOS devices. At the time, the chained attack took advantage of three unpatched zero-day vulnerabilities within the IOS platform to attack and enable the spyware on the targeted device. While Apple did patch the zero-days in IOS 9.3.5, NSO Group has continued the development of Pegasus, implementing new ways to exploit IOS devices.

Pelorus, in partnership with Zimperium offers individual, enterprise and government customers the best protection for mobile users against various types of malware attacks including Pegasus using Zimperium ZIPS and ZecOps.
