Kapitel #5 - Schutz vor Pegasus

Wache

Jedes Jahr investieren Regierungen, Strafverfolgungsbehörden, Militärs und Unternehmen Milliarden von Dollar in die Entwicklung und den Kauf von bösartiger Spyware – Software, die entwickelt wurde, um unbemerkt in das Gerät eines Benutzers einzudringen und Angreifern die Möglichkeit zu geben, den Inhalt unbemerkt einzusehen.

In diesem Jahr deckte das Pegasus-Projekt auf, dass Benutzer dieser Art von Spionagesoftware, die unter dem Namen Pegasus bekannt ist und von der NSO-Gruppe entwickelt wurde, die Telefone von Tausenden von Menschen in mehr als 50 Ländern ins Visier genommen hatten, darunter Führungskräfte aus der Wirtschaft, Politiker, Journalisten und Menschenrechtsaktivisten.

In dieser Ausgabe von PrivChat diskutieren Likhita und Etienne Maynier von Amnesty International und John Scott-Railton von Citizen Lab:

  • What individuals, journalists, activists, and human rights defenders can do to protect themselves against sophisticated spyware?
  • What kind of organizations can we support to help stop this abuse?
  • Who is working on safer, more private software that we can trust?

Roger Dingledine, Co-Founder of the Tor Project, will join us as our host and moderator.
