How to Find if Your Phone is Infected by the Pegasus Spyware?

This toolkit will inform you if your phone has been infected with the Pegasus spyware.

Since yesterday, people have been shocked to learn that governments all over the world have been using Pegasus spyware to monitor vocal critics, including journalists, activists, and politicians. Pegasus, developed by Israel’s NSO Group, is used by countries such as Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, and others.

If you’re wondering you’re one of the many people being tracked by their government, there is a way to determine whether the recently discussed Pegasus spyware has affected your mobile device.

According to TechCrunch, Amnesty International researchers have published a tool that can help anyone and everyone determine if their smartphone has been infected by the dangerous Pegasus spyware. The tool is known as the Mobile Verification Toolkit (MVT).

The Mobile Verification Toolkit, developed by Amnesty International researchers, allegedly detects whether a mobile device has been infected with Pegasus spyware. The toolkit is said to be compatible with both Android and iPhone. According to the researchers, the tool can detect any indicators of compromise (IOC) used by spyware to infect any device.

How to check if your Phone is infected with Pegasus spyware?

According to Amnesty International researchers, iPhones are more susceptible to the Pegasus spyware than Android phones.

The Mobile Verification Toolkit can read the backup for iPhones and look for any indications that the device has been tampered with. The toolkit can read Pegasus-related domains that may be present in the device backup. After that, the tool notifies the user if any such IOC was discovered.

In the case of Android devices, the tool examines the backup for any SMS/text message links to NSO Group domains. It also validates the integrity of all apps installed on the device and determines whether or not they have been compromised.
