News Tech: Shalev Hulio, the CEO of Israel’s NSO Group, which produces the highly contentious Pegasus spyware, announced on Sunday that he will resign as part of an organisational restructuring.

“NSO Group announced today the company will reorganise and CEO Shalev Hulio will step down,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.

Additionally, the privately held, indebted corporation declared that it will concentrate its sales efforts on NATO member nations.

Yaron Shohat, the company’s chief operating officer, would now “take the lead” and oversee the restructuring process, the spokeswoman stated.

However, it is claimed that foreign governments used the spyware to target journalists, diplomats, dissidents, and members of the clergy. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Hungary, and India were among its clientele.

The corporation was added to a US blacklist in November 2021 by the Biden administration after it was found to have behaved “contrary to the foreign policy and national security interests of the US.” Three months after a group of journalists working with the French non-profit organisation Forbidden Stories revealed numerous instances of journalists and activists who were hacked by foreign governments using the spyware, including American citizens, they were given the new designation, which puts NSO in the company of hackers from China and Russia.

The mobile numbers of French President Emmanuel Macron and almost his entire cabinet were found on a leaked list of people who were picked as potential monitoring targets, according to The Guardian and other consortium members.
