India is targeting Apple with investigations and governmental pressure after the company revealed the country’s use of Pegasus spyware against journalists and opposition parties.
India mad about Apple disclosure
In October, Apple alerted independent journalists and opposition politicians in India of possible hacking by government hackers. That led to a swift reaction from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government officials, who targeted Apple rather than addressing the hacking concerns.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) publicly scrutinized Apple’s threat detection algorithms and initiated a probe into Apple device security, report from Amnesty International.
