Now the Pegasus infections can be achieved through so called zero click attacks which do not require any interaction from phone's owner.
It can be used to infiltrate smartphones that run on Android operating systems and turn them into surveillance devices.
Once the spyware enters the device, it installs a module to track call logs read messages, emails ,calendars, internet history and gather location data to send the information to the attacker.
Pegasus method of attack is called Zero click attacks which do not require any action by the user. The spyware can hack a device simply by giving a missed WhatsApp call.It can also be installed manually on a device or over a wireless transceiver.
If it fails to connect with its command and control server for more than 60 days it self destructs and removes all traces. Also if it detects that it was installed on the wrong device or SIM card. It will self-destruct .
Amnesty international noted that despite issuing security updates. Android and IOS devices were breached.
To stay safe users need to ensure that software in devices is update and all apps are installed directly through official store .No suspicious email or text should be clicked.
