I honestly think, there is someone trying to hack my phone with Pegasus.
Since the revelations of the Pegasus papers, I took a great interest in researching Pegasus since it’s also highly linked to my Ba Diploma at the university.
I also joined a call with journalists from The Guardian and Ed Snowden last month.
Since then, I’ve been receiving very sophisticated SMSes on my phone, thru whatsapp and mostly Messages. They are done in a way that they look like a message from Uber, my friend, wrong numbers, and others, just so I could open a link or respond to that message. I know that exploiting a Zero-day as Pegasus doesn’t necessarily mean doing anything, but I know that Pegasus can be installed on the phone also from links like these. Are there any other forms of spyware, ransomware or malware that can be used in such manner? Is it actually Pegasus? or am I just overthinking it? What are your thoughts on this?
