Capítulo #5 - Proteção contra Pegasus


Todos os anos, governos, agências de aplicação da lei, militares e corporações investem bilhões de dólares na construção e compra de spyware malicioso - software projetado para se infiltrar silenciosamente no dispositivo de um usuário e permitir que invasores visualizem o conteúdo sem detecção.

This year, the Pegasus Project revealed that users of this kind of spyware, known as Pegasus and built by the NSO group, had targeted the phones that belong to thousands of people in more than 50 countries, including business executives, politicians, journalists, and human rights activists.

Nesta edição do PrivChat, junte-se a Likhita e Etienne Maynier da Anistia Internacional e John Scott-Railton do Citizen Lab para discutir:

  • 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.
