The US agency said it procured a “limited license” on the surveillance software merely for “product testing and evaluation only” in order to “stay abreast of emerging technologies and tradecraft.”

The bureau also claimed in a statement that it had never used Pegasus in support of any FBI investigation. (The Guardian)

The NSO spyware came to light in July following an investigation led by Forbidden Stories, a Paris-based media non-profit, in collaboration with Amnesty International.

Some 50,000 phones have been illegally accessed using the malware, according to the investigation.
