– The Israeli company NSO, the maker of Pegasus tracking software, is in talks with US venture capital fund honesty partners to sell assets – US and Israeli media. The spy application can be turned into a defensive cyber security tool.
According to the “Horek” newspaper, the talks are at an advanced stage, although they are not over yet. Honest shareholders may control the NSO later this year.
“Software that allows foresight tracking”
According to the Israeli newspaper, the purpose of the sale will be to restructure the company, which has fallen into disrepute and financial problems under the sanctions of US authorities. This is the result of the company’s flagship product – the Pegasus hacking tool – being used to break the phones of US ambassadors.

According to a Bloomberg report, the Israeli company “focuses on plans to transform the intelligence behind the Pegasus into defensive cyber security services.”
The NSO did not directly comment on honesty stakeholder funding talks, but said it was interested in acquiring several U.S. funds and that each of them was negotiating.
